PREFACE 



Rich and colorful in heritage and tradition, Cebu is an integral part of the 
Republic of the Philippines. It has played a role so unique and tremendous in 
the building and adapting the ways and culture of a western world so foreign 
and strange to a multitude of natives who at that time populated this eastern 
group of islands. 

Cebu's metamorphosis had become a milestone in the annals of history, in 
that it was the epicenter of distribution, socially, politically and economically, 
since the landing of the Island's discoverer on April 7, 1521. Humbly and with- 
out vaunt, Cebu can claim the first historic landmark which was ever planted 
on the soil of any of the myriad little islands in the Pacific. The giant Holy 
Cross, one of the many world-tourist attractions in the Philippines, speaks for 
itself. 

Rudely built of nipa and bamboo, the first Roman Catholic Church was 
established in 1565. At one time as a token of friendship and goodwill, our dis- 
coverer, Ferdinand Magellan, gave to Rajah Humabon's beautiful wife an 
image of the hallowed Santo Nino, which, full and intact, is still standing to 
this day in St. Augustine's Church. Lost for quite a while after the din of battle 
and turmoil, there, amidst its ruin and debris, on April 28, 1565 a man by the 
name of Juan de Camus by a stroke of luck and fortune retrieved the statuary — 
thus recovering the most precious and tangible relic brought from a Kingdom 
by those who dared set foot on hostile shores. To top it all off, the first Catholic 
wedding ceremony took place in Cebu. An attractive scion of King Tupas was 
given in marriage by the chieftain himself to a soldier of Legaspi. These and 
many more instances which need not be mentioned here are but a few contribu- 
tions (though not necessarily accomplishments) which Cebuanos can be proud 
of and the rest cannot ignore. 

Delve into the unturned pages of history and tread the beaten paths of glory 
and find Cebu has much to answer to any question. It was the first rebel ever 
to rise against the Spanish rule. Translated into any language such unmitigated 
act is merely the love of liberty and freedom. Let's leave this up to Lapu Lapu. 
Then, let history repeat itself. Since Cebu was the first to tight an invader, so 
by the grace of God — who knows — it might be the last to surrender. From 
pre-Spanish time up to now, Cebu had never trailed behind ami, like the pio- 
neers, shall be still blazing a trail.

MESSAGE 



It is with distinct pleasure that I greet the Cebu Associa- 
tion of California, Incorporated on the celebration of the 
fiesta of Sto. Nino de Jesus on January 25, 1969. 

It is indeed heartening to note that the Cebuanos compris- 
ing the association, which is one of the newest organzations 
in San Francisco, California, have seen fit to observe the 
Feast Day of our venerated Patron Saint of Cebu City. It 
serves to prove that our religious faith is of such deep and 
abiding character as to transcend great distances. 

I wish the Cebu Association of California, Incorporated 
all the success of the festivities which I understand will be 
held for the first time in honor of Sto. Nino de Jesus. 

City of Cebu, Philippines, January 2, 1969.

PRESIDENT'S 
MESSAGE 




It is with pleasure and pride for me to note that the members of the Cebu 
Association of California, Incorporated, our friends, patrons, associates, and the 
general public as a whole have taken the initiative to cooperate and have given 
their whole hearted support to celebrate the "Fiesta of the Infant Jesus of Cebu" 
for the first time in San Francisco, marking it with the appropriate emphasis it 
deserves. 

I have always prayed that strength and courage be given to all our members 
and that we will see more clearly not that which divides us, but that which unites 
us, that each hour may bring us the success we have fought for, and the bless- 
ings to build and grow, to meet in harmony and sympathy with our fellow 
members and friends, and through all these we can plan the future with con- 
fidence. 

I'm very proud to say that the Cebu Association of California, Incorporated 
for a very short time of existence, has accomplished so much that we have not 
even dreamt of. All of this is because of the confidence and support our mem- 
bers and friends have given us. 

I hope that all these ideals we have developed in ourselves will keep on in 
our hearts. Through our courage and nobility we can be assured of our fullest 
success in the realization of our aims. If we fight for these ideals, the victory 
achieved by our sacrifices will forever stand in our hearts not only today or to- 
morrow, but always. 

Sincerely, 

President and Founder 
Cebu Association of California. Inc.

MESSAGE 



I wish to convey my heartfelt greetings and best wishes 
for success to the Cebu Association of California on the 
occasion of their celebration of the Fiesta of Santo Nino de 
Cebu on January 25, 1969. May this event be a source of 
blessings upon the Cebu Association of California, upon 
our own Province of Cebu and our Country, the Philippines. 

Devotion to the Santo Nino or the Holy Child has always 
been a strong characteristic of the Cebuano people as well 
as of the Filipinos in general. This was proven during the 
last I VCentennial Celebration when the whole Filipino pop- 
ulace joined hands and hearts at the solemn Coronation of 
the Santo Nino de Cebu on April 28, 1965. Today let us 
hope and pray that this devotion will be a bond of love and 
peace for us all, Filipinos. 

I am glad that in such faraway Country where you are 
the flame of your love for the Holy Child still burns brighter 
than ever. This is one sure sign that your Christian faith is 
one that is alive and fervent. May you keep it ever burning 
until eternity. 

Hence, while we honor and adore the Holy Child Jesus 
in the image of the Santo Nino de Cebu, let us ever keep in 
mind that He stands for the spirit of simplicity and humility 
as a condition to enter God's kingdom and for the love and 
good upbringing of children who will be the men and leaders 
of tomorrow. 

As I extend to you my sincere greetings and best wishes 
for success in your celebrations, I herewith impart to you all, 
member of the Cebu Association of California, my paternal 
blessings!

MESSAGE 

I am indeed very happy that the annual fiesta celebra- 
tion of the Patron Saint of Cebu City, the miraculous Senor 
Santo Nino de Jesus, finds a place in the hearts of Cebuanos 
residing in the United States, more particularly among the 
members of the Cebu Association of California, Inc. in San 
Francisco. 

When you get together on January 25, the date set aside 
for your fiesta, we who are miles away from you can only 
offer our best wishes for the success of your celebration, and 
the hope that this will be the beginning of future celebra- 
tions in the years to come. 

May I therefore, extend to you my heartfelt greetings 

and felicitations on this occasion of Thanksgiving and may

MESSAGE 




On the celebration this year of the fiesta of the patron saint of Cebu, the Sto. 
Nino, I extend my greetings and good wishes to all Cebuanos within the San 
Francisco consular area. 

Traditionally the Sto. Nino Fiesta goes back through the pages of history 
to the time when the image of the Nino was given to the wife of Rajah 
Humabon by Ferdinand Magellan in 1521. The religious zeal and piety of the 
Cebuanos in celebrating this yearly event are carried by them wherever they are, 
even in this distant land. 

Cebuanos should remember that the true spirit of the Sto. Nino is the hope 
that our salvation is always possible if we practice humility, industry and devo- 
tion to the good life in accordance with the teachings of the Man who died on 
the cross. With this in our minds, I believe we can go through this year's fiesta 
of the Sto. Nino with a meaningful "Pit Senior".

FOREWORD 

By CELESTINO T. ALFAFARA 




I welcome the opportunity of writing the foreword of this souvenir book 
because I have a few thoughts that I would like to impart to my fellow Cebu- 
anos in particular and to the Filipinos in general. 

A few years ago, two national organizations were formed — namely, the 
Filipino-American Council and the Filipino-American Political Association. 
Their main objective is the unification of the Filipinos in the United States so 
that our voice can be heard in the Municipal, State and Federal Governments. 

I would like to see the Cebu Association be at the vanguard of this noble 
movement. I will be very proud if the Cebuanos will live up to the prestige 
of our beloved province as the cradle of Christian civilization in Asia. 

Another thought that I would like to inculcate in the minds of the young 
Cebuanos is the preservation of the traditional religious veneration of the 

Santo Nino de Cebu. Young men, remember what Benjamin Disraeli said that. 
"The youth of <i nation are the trustees of posterity." 

Although we are ten thousand miles away, let us, by our prayers, join the 
caravans of thousands and thousands of devotees who are now making their 
annual pilgrimage to pay homage to Santo Nino de Cebu. 

PIT SENOR, SANK) NINO! 



ON THE SECOND ANNIVERSARY OF 
CEBU ASSOCIATION OF CALIFORNIA 

By Juvencio C. Alquizola 




Life Member 

Chairman of the Board 

Cebu Association oj California 

Auspicious to Cebuanos is this day, January 15, 1968, when a small group 
of their fellow citizens began to gather momentum and dream up something 
which led to the subsequent formation of an organization which has never been 
successfully attempted hitherto by any other groups of people who hail from 
this particular province. Thus a newly-born society came into existence, better 
known as Cebu Association of California. 

Founded and organized by the incomparable Miss Sally Famarin, with the 
undivisive help of the original members, the seed which was once a dream, 
began to take roots. Only two years today but already it has accomplished 
something worthwhile which merits public attention. 

Interrelationship with other organizations, civic mindedness in public af- 
fairs, putting our perspective into focus and projecting new ideas, however 
humble and alien they may appear in the eyes of other people, these are the few 
points that this newly-born organization is trying to bring about, promote and 
accomplish, God willing, if given time and place under the sun. 

Consequently, it is celebrating it's second anniversary in conjunction with 
the traditional fiesta in honor of the Infant Child, Santo Nino de Cebu, the be- 
loved patron saint of Cebu City. 

Through the inexhaustible efforts of its founder and first elected president 
(and a public relations expert, to boot) the timely acquisition of a replica of 
the Infant Child of Cebu, has been made possible. With due consent and ap- 
proval of the Diocese of St. Patrick's Church this will be enthroned therein 
every year on the day of the festival. 

We pay homage to the Infant Child, salute the president and all the members. 

Juvenxio C. Alquizola

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 




On behalf of the Cebu Association of California, I would like to say that 
words can barely express the joy we feel within our hearts for the full coopera- 
tion you all have given us on our celebration of the Feast of the Santo Nino de 
Cebu. 

Today, marks a very memorable day to all the members of the association, for 
their dream of having the Statue of the Sto. Nino de Cebu has been fulfilled. 
Our aim of having the Grandest Fiesta has been accomplished. 

To all the members of this organization who have worked and struggled so 
long to bring our dreams to reality, my heartfelt congratulations. 

To Senator Milton Marks, to the different organizations, business associates 
and representatives, who have always been with us, thank you ever so much. 
Our business is improvement. Let our age be the age of improvement. Let us 
build and promote what we have aimed for and cultivate a true spirit of union 
and harmony. Let our conceptions be enlarged to the circle of our duties. Let 
us extend our ideas over the vast field in which we are called upon to act. Let 
our object be our unity and harmony, and by the blessings of God, may our 
organization itself become a vast and splendid monument, not of arguments 
or discord, but of wisdom and peace, upon which, others may gaze with admira- 
tion forever.

I am exceedingly delighted to greet my brother Cebuanos 
of the Cebu Association of California, and extremely glad 
to note their devotion to our revered Senor Sto. Nino. It is 
very heartwarming and gratifying to know that distance has 
not diminished their memory and veneration of our Holy 
Patron. 

On this occasion I very happily extend my warmest felici- 
tations to the officers and members of the Cebu Association 
of California. I join you in invoking the continued bene- 
volence and good graces of our beloved Senor Sto. Nino, 
and wish your association and all its members more success 
and prosperity.

My heartfelt best wishes to the members of the Cebu As-

of San Francisco, on the occasion of the Fiesta of the Santo 
Nino de Cebu, the Patron Saint of Cebu City. 

Your celebration of January 24 continues a most beau-

I extend my most sincere greetings, and may the 1970's 
bring many blessings and much happiness to you and your

MESSAGE 




My family and I take great pleasure in extending to the 
members of the Cebu Association of California in San Fran- 
cisco our warmest greetings on the occasion of their annual 
fiesta celebration on January 24, 1970 in honor of their 
Patron Saint, Senor Sto. Nino. 

Cebu has earned that unerring reference in history as 
the "Cradle of Christianity in the Far Fast." Roman Ca- 
tholicism having been deeply ingrained in our way of life 
as a religious people, it is not surprising to find our brother 
Cebuanos go out of their way to propagate the sacred and 
priceless heritage of the Faith wherever they may be. 

We join the thousands of Cebuanos here and abroad in 
wishing the celebrants all the success as the) pa\ annual 
homage to Senor Sto. Nino.

MESSAGE 

My heartiest greetings and best wishes to my brother 
Cebuanos comprising the Cebu Association of California 
in San Francisco, as they observe the annual Feast Day of 
their Patron Saint, Senor Sto. Nino, on January 24, 1970. 

It is indeed heartening to note that the venerated Patron 
Saint of this City is also revered by devout Catholics from 
Cebu in a far away land. The festivities will no doubt evoke 
poignant memories of the fervor with which the occasion 
is celebrated by the Catholic faithful here, and I do not have 
the slightest doubt that the same will be marked by the same 
degree of enthusiasm and devotion. 

Once again, I convey the best wishes of the residents of 
this City and my own to our fellow Cebuanos in California, 
U.S.A. for the resounding success of the festivities. 

City of Cebu, December 2, 1969.

MESSAGE 




To the Cebu Association of California and to all devotees 
of the Santo Nino de Cebu I wish to convey my cordial felici- 
tations for a holy celebration of the Holy Child's Feastday 
which is a day of great rejoicing for all Cebuanos. 

The devotion to the Santo Nino has been a source of 

countless blessings for all Cebuanos. It has made the people 
aware of the respect due to children as God's creatures bear- 
ing the image of Christ. Family life has been unified and 
strengthened by the veneration rendered to the Holy Child. 
This in itself already constitutes a great blessing to the Peo- 
ple of God. 

The history of the Cebuano people cannot be separated 
from this popular devotion which has given main' admirable 
and virtuous traits to the people of Cebu in general. Ours is 
the sincere wish to be united spiritually to all devotees of the 
Santo Nino during the holy celebrations on January 24th. 
1970. 

To you all 1 impart my fatherly blessings!

MESSAGE 




Brethren, let me extend my warmest greetings to every- 
one of you. Peace and joy be in your heart forever as Santo 
Nino the Prince of peace has announced to us through the 
mouth of His angel "And on earth peace to men of good 
will." 

Let the goodwill therefore, be the spirit of all our actions, 
whether in the fulfillment of the precepts of God or in our 
dealings with our fellow men, for it is in our will (inten- 
tions ) where we get the value of our good actions with refer- 
ence to our spiritual life on earth. Where there is a will there 
is a way, where there is a way, Santo Nino has an access to 
you ; He will come to you and you will have peace as He 
often said to His disciples, "Peace be to you."

MESSAGE 



The Clergy of St. Patrick's join me in expressing our 
gratitude to the people of Cebu for selecting St. Patrick's 
Church as the place of their annual Mass and enthronement 
of the Santo Nino. We in San Francisco can learn much 
in the practice of the faith from the people of your beautiful 
island. 

Most sincerely yours, 
Rt. Rev. C. J. McKenna

Before the Santo Nino de Cehu left the Islands, it 
was blessed hv Father Suarez. Picture above shows 
the Santo Nino, the two altar hoys and Father Snarez. 
This was taken in the Basilica in Cehu City, Philip- 
pine Islands. 



Mrs. Aquilina Rodriquez Velez, owner of the Ladies 
Home Dormitory in Cehu City is the one person who 
has worked hard and helped the Association to 
acquire the Beautiful linage of the Santa Nino de 
Cehu. To her we owe so much and we extend our 
profound thanks. 




Upon the arrival of the Santo Nino, the officers and members of the Cebu Association gathered 
and celebrated a big welcome party at the residence of Mr. ami Mrs. Henrj Baldevea in San 
Francisco. The beautiful statute is the exact image of the Santo Nino de Cehu. Picture above

LOVE OF COUNTRY 

Copyright 1969 by JUVENCIO C. ALQUIZOLA 



XXXVIII 

Out here the breakers rush in one by one 
And reach for me like hands across the sea; 
Then to the world I'm lonely and alone 
For someone somewhere keeps on calling me. 
I know not what the call is for, what gnaws 
My lonely heart, what it is all about. 
But then it dawns on me that this which awes 
My heart is warning for the last call out. 
Towards the last step of the journey home 
When one takes stock of all his days and lands, 
There crowd those moments where he used to roam, 
Those memories of home from alien strands. 

One always yearns to see the land of his birth 
After his wanderings 'round this weary earth. 



XL 

These teeming islands of the eastern sea, 
These mountain tops that look up to the skies, 
These friendly shores that beckon you and me, 
This soil, this haven next to paradise, 
Your seas divide us but your heart unites; 
Your arms infold to bring us into one; 
Your beauty still beguiles us and invites 
The rest of our lives till our days are done! 
For oh, My Country, you are all I have, 
And this return that is long overdue; 
The birth you gave me is not all you gave; 
You gave me love and this I give to you. 

If there be one whoever loved you more, 
It is this heart, My Country, to the core.

To you, My Country, I will sing a few 

Songs of the glorious battles long ago! 

Of love and old acquaintances renew, 

Since I have been too long away from you. 

Too long and far away from you but I 

Have long since held your hand in mine each day. 

And in my wanderings often with a sigh 

I call your name in silence as I pray. 

Those turbulent years that moved your men to rise, 

Are quiet now, alike the bloody tide. 

For you they gave their lives and won the prize 

For which your martyrs and your heroes died! 

They fought and died for your liberty, 
For you I die and love no less than they. 



XLI 

Not Sparta owned more valiant men than you — 
You had Malvar, Luna and Del Pilar! 
Nor Rome, possessed of more proud men and true, 
Than your Rizal, Mabini, M. del Pilar, 
Bonifacio, Aguinaldo and myriad more. 
When Spain embarked on conquest for new lands, 
Your men of courage matched her rape with gore. 
May God increase this fearless breed that stands 
For freedom, liberty and human right! 
And build us stronger leaders for our race, 
Who, as before, fear not the enemy's might 
Would desecrate again this hallowed place. 

Dear Motherland, I consecrate and give 
My heart to you — to die, to love and live.

THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU 

.On April 28, 1565, Juan Camus, a sailor in Legaspi's fleet, 
found in a modest house of the then village of Cebu the Image 
of Santo Nino which at the time all agreed had been brought 
from Europe. Deeply impressed by this finding and aware of its 
significance, Legaspi ordered an official inquiry conducted; the 
document, drawn on May I 6 of the same year and still extant in 
the archives of the Santo Nino Convent of Cebu, tells us from 
the testimony of eyewitnesses that ihe Image was found inside a 
small pine box, preserved in almost perfect condition; it had on 
a little shirt and a cap; two of its right hand's fingers were raised 
in a gesture of blessing, while the left hand held a globe symboliz- 
ing the world. 

In solemn procession the Image was carried to the provisio- 
nal Church the Augustinian Fathers were using at the time; later, 
another Church was built on the exact location where the Image 
had been found: this is the site of the Santo Nino Church where 
the Augustinians have cared for the Image and the Filipino 
people have venerated it through the centuries. 

An earlier authenticated entry in the Journal of Pigaffeta, 
clerk in the Magellan expedition, explains the origin of Santo 
Nino: on the day Queen Juana was baptized by Father Pedro Val- 
derrama, chaplain of that expedition, Pigaffeta himself present- 
ed her with the Image. 

During the last War a bomb fell inside the Church, but the 
Image was found unscathed. At present, through the initiative 
and with the cooperation of the Augustinians and the Filipino 
people the Santo Nino Church has been renovated in the interior 
and given the rank of Basilica, to make it a still more fitting shrine 
for the beloved Santo Nino, Comforter of the first missionaries 
and divine Protector of the Philippines. 



From the Novena Copyright in 1960 by the Augustinian Fathers in Cebu City, 
Philippine Islands.

A CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE 



BY JUVENCIO C. ALQUIZOLA 




All the world loves a champion and finally lovely Miss Rose Marie Famarin, 
after the rigors of a hard-fought contest, has emerged victorious and joined with the 
rank of winners with all the trappings of royalty. 

Even in the old days a queen was always desirable — either to reign over a 
country or to rule over a king. 

Therefore, a salute to Rose Marie, Queen of the Festival which this organiza- 
tion is celebrating tonight in honor of our beloved patron saint, Santo Nino of Cebu, 
whose omnipresence has made us all Christians under the skin. While we pay homage 
to the Holy Child on this occasion, it is a good reason for celebration. 

At this very moment Cebu Association of California is sending its warmest 
congratulations to petite and comely MissRose Marie Famarin, Queen of the Festival. 
May her reign be prosperous and fruitful th roughout the year 1971. 




President CACI delivering her message while Congressman Leo S. McCarthy. Dr. Francisco 
Gerardo, Senator Milton Marks, and some close friends listen closely. 

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 

The Third Annual Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu celebrated this 9th day of January 1971 is 
brighter and greater than ever. To vhe members of the Cebu Association this is another milestone, a 
milestone of hard work and efforts to have a most successful celebra.ion which not only benefits the 
members, but everyone who has given us their support, the whole community who wants to be part of 
us. I'm very proud to say that year aLer year our membership has grown not thru diligent efforts in 
hard campaigning but rather thru the cooperation, understanding, and unity of those who want to be 
with us and in their hearts grow the initiative to become one of us. 

The image of the Santo Nino we acquired last year has given us more courage to further our 
goals. It's not only our members who are asking for the Blessings of our San.o Nino, but all those who 
believe in Him. To the most beautiful and heartfelt messages from the most Honorable people as: 
President Richard Nixon of the United States of America, Governor Reagan of California, Mayor Alio- 
to of San Francisco, Archbishop Joseph T. McGucken of San Francisco, Cardinal Julio M. Rosales of 
Cebu City, Governor O. G. Rama, Cebu Province, Mayor E. Borres of Cebu City: Sen. Milton Marks 
of the State of California, Senator Sergio Osmena, Jr., of Cebu Ci.y, and Monsignor C. J. McKenna of 
the Parish of St. Patrick's Church in San Francisco, who, year after year has rendered his faithful serv- 
ices for us. 

To all of you who have helped and supported us, a million thanks. A special mention goes to our 
closest friends and to Sen. Milton Marks, whose heart and hands are wide open for us. Col. Paul E. 
Pique who is just grea,.; Congressman Leo McCarthy who just can't say no; Mr. Thomas Mellon, the 
Chief Administrative Officer of San Francisco; Queens, Princesses and Presidents of various organiza- 
tions, the Sixth Army of Presidio, Richard Banks of Phil. Air Lines, Deme.rio Jayme the pure Cebuano

MESSAGE 

It is with much pleasure that I greet the officers and members on the Cebu Association 
of California on the occasion of their annual celebration of the fiesta of the Santo Nino of Cebu- 

I am very happy to note that our people, in the United States, particularly the Cebuanos 
despite being so far away from the Philippines, still cherish and hold dear the customs and tradi- 
tions of the homeland. I think this is as should be. America is after all a land of many cultures, 
and our people in this country do well to contribute to it to the best of Philippine culture. 

To the Cebu Association I therefore offer my hearty congratulations and best wishes for 
success.

MESSAGE 

I wish to convey my heartfelt greetings and best 
wishes for success to the Cebu Association of California 
on the occasion of their celebration of the Fiesta of Santo 
Nino de Cebu on January 9, 1971. May this event be a 
source of blessings upon the Cebu Association of Cal- 
ifornia, upon our own Province of Cebu and our Coun- 
try, the Philippines. 

Devotion to the Santo Nino or the Holy Child has 
always been a strong characteristic of the Cebuano people 
as well as of the Filipinos in general. This was proven 
during the last Quadricentennial Celebration when the 
whole Filipino populace joined hands and hearts at 
the solemn Coronation of the Santo Nino de Cebu on 
April 28, 1965. Today let us hope and pray this devo- 
tion will be a bond of love and peace for us all, Filipinos. 

I am glad that in such far away Country where you 
are, the flame of your love for the Holy Child still burns 
brighter than ever. This is one sure sign that your Christian faith is one that is alive and fervent. 
May you keep it ever burning until eternity. 

Hence, while we honor and adore the Holy Child Jesus in the image of the Santo Nino 
de Cebu, let us ever keep in mind that He stands for the spirit of simplicity and humility as a 
condition to enter God's kingdom and for the love and good upbringing of children who will be 
the men and leaders of tomorrow. 

As I extend to you my sincere greetings and best wishes for success in your celebrations, I 
herewith impart to you all, members of the Cebu Association of California, my paternal 
blessings!

MESSAGE 

It is with distinct pleasure that I greet the Cebu Association of California, In- 
corporated on the celebration of the fiesta of Sto. Nino de Jesus on January 9, 1971. 

It is indeed heartening to note that the venerated Patron Saint of this City is 
also revered by devout Catholics from Cebu in a far away land. The festivities will no 
doubt evoke poignant memories of the fervor with which the occasion is celebrated 
by the Catholic faithful here, and I do not have the slightest doubt that the same will 
be marked by the same degree of enthusiasm and devotion. 

Once again, I convey the best wishes of the residents of this City and my own 
to our fellow Cebuanos in California, U.S.A. for the resounding success of the festi- 
vities.

SONNETS TO DENISE 

Copyright ©1969 
By JUVENCIO C. ALQUIZOLA 

WHERE DEEDS BEGAN - XLII 

The voice in the wilderness was heard 

And the dream of a dreamer would be heard as well; 

All should be heard of, none would be ignored. 

Even a sparrow or a leaf that fell. 

The Pyramids and Parthenons were built 

Upon the inexhaustible dreams of man; 

Great deeds, great songs had sprung from out this field, 

Great cities rose up where great dreams began. 

I could not care less if none heard of mine 

Though I had sown a few for some to reap; 

A seed today might someday be a vine 

Which in all likelihood would start a heap. 

Or be a pebble cast into the sea, 

Without a ripple nor identity. 

THE ARBOR VITAE - XLII! 

Then be a cedar tree which has long since 
Been growing eons through the ages dead; 
In whose life, time lies still; and ages hence 
Shall be still growing in the forest glade! 
Time ages man but not the cedar tree 
Whose elixir of life is in its sap; 
It teaches love and hates no enemy, 
Though Nature heaps abuse upon its lap. 
Its skin renews and wrinkles not, unlike 
The brows of man; its arms lift up to heaven. 
And when disease, dearth, drought and death do strike, 
It stands but unperturbed in a world mad-driven. 
The cedar tree is like eternity. 
If only jealous men would let it be. 

THE CYCLE OF LIFE - XLIV 

Observe the seasons: one succeeds another. 

The cycle keeps a definite time from somewhere; 

Each, like an offspring, is born of its mother: 

The spring of winter and the autumn summer. 

From summer flowers fruits become in autumn; 

From winter bare trees buds burst forth in spring. 

The cycle starts again from top to bottom, 

Then life begins and it completes the ring. 

So life is rounded, therefore, has no end; 

And, being thus, ends not when it is spun. 

Where life is given something is attained; 

When it is taken something is begun. 

There is no death: it is just the beginning 
Of a new life which keeps the cycle spinning. 

COSMIC FORCE - XLV 

When I ponder of our globe which spins in space, 
(if suns and moons and stars, how each revolves 
Around and turns secure in its own place 
In perfect unison among themselves; 
And when I see their Creator's purpose why 
He made them all to stay, not to collide 
Against each other, then of a sudden I 
Realize their Creator is Himself the Guide 
Of each and all he created here on earth: 
The bright day-lamp and tapers for the night. 
The good air which has been with us since birth. 
Our nights and days, life-giving sleep and light. 
These, not by accident, came to exist, 
Built by a supreme Creator at His best.

THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU 



On April 28, 15 65, Juan Camus, a sailor in Le- 
gazpi's fleet, found in a modest house of the then 
village of Cebu the Image of Santo Nino which at 
the time all agreed had been brought from Europe. 
Deeply impressed by this finding and aware of its sig- 
nificance, Legazpi ordered an official inquiry con- 
ducted; the document, drawn on May 16 of the same 
year and still extant in the archives of the Santo Nirio 
Convent of Cebu, tells us from the testimony of eye- 
witnesses that the Image was found inside a small pine 
box, preserved in almost perfect condition; it had 
on a little shirt and a cap; two of its right hand's fin- 
gers were raised in a gesture of blessing, while the 
left hand held a globe symbolizing the world. 

In solemn procession the Image was carried 
to the provisional Church the Augustinian Fathers 
were using at the time; later, another Church was 
built on the exact location where the image had been 
found: this is the site of the Santo Nirio Church where 
the Augustinian have cared for the Image and the 
Filipino people have venerated it through the cen- 
turies. 

An earlier authenticated entry in the Journal of 
Pigaffeta, clerk in the Magellan expedition, explains 
the origin of Santo Nirio: on the day Queen Juana 
was baptized by Father Pedro Valderrama, chaplain 
of that expedition, Pigaffeta himself presented her 
with the Image. 

During the last War a bomb fell inside the Church, but the Image was found unscathed. At 
present, through the initiative and with the cooperation of the Augustinians and the Filipino peo- 
ple, the Santo Nirio Church has been renovated in the interior and given the rank of Basilica, to 
make it a still more fitting shrine for the beloved Santo Nirio, Comforter of the first missionaries 
and divine Protector of the Philippines.

My heartfelt thanks to one and all! 

I extend my warmest appreciation to you all who have supported me and helped 
me to fulfill my dreams and desires to be Queen of Cebu 1972-1973. I am filled with 
joy and happiness. And I would like to thank, especially, my mother and father who as- 
sisted me in obtaining my goal as queen. And I would also like to thank the Ufafara 
members, Mr. & Mrs. Guiwan and Mr. and Mrs. Arcol. 

During my reign as Queen of Cebu I promise to do whatever I can to further the 
aims of the Association. In the name of Santo Nino I thank you all from the bottom of 
my heart.

It is with deep humility and tremendous pride that I can personally thank all of the offi- 
cers and members of the CEBU ASSOCIATION of California for the tremendous effort they 
have put forth to make this, the fourth annual celebration honoring "The Infant Jesus of Cebu", 
our finest fiesta ever. 

At a time in history when so many different ideologies are dividing so many peoples of the 
world, it is most gratifiying to be a part of and to be able to witness the ever growing unity of our 
members and the whole Filipino community in the Bay Area. 

A salute to our beautiful Queen Victoria I and may her reign be the happiest and most gra- 
tifying year of her young life. 

I am honored to be able to thank all of the National, International, State and City digni- 
taries who respect our belief in the Senor Santo Nino and have sent us the beautiful heartfelt mes- 
sages for the success of our Fiesta held this January 22nd, 1972. 

This one full day of celebration, beginning with the High Mass at St. Patrick's Church, 
followed by a gourmet luncheon of Filipino delicacies, then, on to the pageantry and the crown- 
ing of the Queen, gives the Filipino American a brief glimpse back into their homeland and I 
hope leaves them with man}' pleasant memories. 

To the youth of our community who have never seen the beautiful land their parents came 
from, this is a challenge to them as future leaders of our community to carry on their rich heritage 
and to never let it die, but in the name of Santo Nino go forward with head held high and be 
proud of their honorable heritage.

MESSAGE 

It is always a pleasure for me to greet and congratulate the officers and members of the 
Cebu Association of California as they gather every year in January to celebrate the Fiesta of 
Santo Nino de Cebu. It is most gratifiying for me, as a representative of the Philippine Govern- 
ment in San Francis_o and Northern California, to see still cherished so devotedly in this country a 
religious tradition from the Philippines, and by persons who probably are now American citizens. 
There is nothing incompatible between being loyal to the country of one's adoption and still pre- 
serving the cultural heritage of one's country of origin. As American culture has been made richer 
by cultural influences of its varied immigrant peoples, Filipino-Americans do well to contribute 
to it the best of theirs.

Very Dear Friends: 



I am happy to unite my prayers and good wishes with the Cebu Association of California in the 
celebration of the fourth annual observance of the Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu. 

At this time, when the bonds of family life in this country need to be strengthened in imita- 
tion of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, we deeply appreciate the work of your Association 
and your devotion to the Santo Nino as a means of inspiring the highest values of Catholic family life 
and the maintenance of the sacred traditions which you bring with you from your homeland. 



Wishing you every grace and blessing for the New Year, I am 



Yours sincerely in Christ.

It gives me great pleasure to learn that you have again selected St. Patrick's Parish for your 
Annual Mass. The Clergy join with me in extending a most cordial welcome. 

May I offer you and your countrymen my congratulations on your evident success in keeping 
alive the faith and customs of your homeland, which we know to be of immeasurable value. We promise 
you every cooperation. 

With every best wish for the success of this year's celebration, I am 



Sincerely yours,

TO THE CEBU ASSOCIATION: 

My congratulations to all of you for having achieved unity among Cebuanos and for having fostered the 
devotion to Santo Nino, the Patron of Cebu. 

This celebration brings us the memory of the great donation of our Cebuanos to the Holy Infant. The 
Basilica in Cebu is the must frequented Church by Cebuanos because the authentic miraculous image of Santo Xifio 
is enthroned in that Church. May this celebration and devotion bring us closer to Jesus and let us live an authen- 
tic Christian life patterned after that of Jesus Himself. 

God bless you.

My warmest greetings and wishes for success to the Cebu Association of California on the 
celebration of Santo Nino fiesta. It is fitting to celebrate this event with holy rejoicing and joy- 
ful thanksgiving for all past benefits received from the hand of divine Providence. This yearly 
festivity imparts to every Cebuano a sense belonging to the Cebuano trait of piety, friendship and 
hospitality. 

We fervently pray that the blessings of Santo Nino may descend in abundance upon all 
members of the Cebu Association of California. 



With my paternal benediction, I beg to remain

MESSAGE 



It is with profound pleasure that I convey to my brother Cebuanos comprising the "Cebu Association of 
California" my warmest greetings and best wishes as they observe the annual Feast Day of the Sto. Nino de Cebu 
on January 22. 

It is indeed heartening to note that the venerated Patron Saint of this, our beloved City, will be the object of 
devotion and homage at about the same time we hold the yearly festivities here in His honor. Religious fervor trans- 
cends distances, and the annual fiesta celebration under the auspices of fellow Cebuanos now residing in California, 
U.S.A. best exemplifies this. 

The occasion provides an excellent opportunity for all of US to reaffirm our devotion in keeping with the 
heritage of the Faith which has flourished for over four centuries since the image of Holy Child Jesus was brought 
to Cebu. 

I reiterate my best wishes that the festivities will culminate in a resounding success

HISTORY OF CEBU 




Rich and colorful in heritage and tradition, Cebu is an integral part of the Republic of the 
Philippines. It has played a role so unique and tremendous in the building and adapting the ways 
and culture of a western world so foreign and strange to a multitude of natives who at that time 
populated this eastern group of islands. 

Cebu's metamorphosis had become a milestone in the annals of history, in that it was the 
epicenter of distribution, socially, politically and economically, since the landing of the Island's 
discoverer on April 7, 1521. Humbly and without vaunt, Cebu can claim the first historic land- 
mark which was ever planted on the soil of any of the myriad little islands in the Pacific. The giant 
Holy Cross, one of the many world-tourist attractions in the Philippines, speaks for itself. 

Rudely built of nipa and bamboo, the first Roman Catholic Church was established in 
1565. At one time as a token of friendship and goodwill, our discoverer, Ferdinand Magellan, gave 
to Rajah Humabon's beautiful wife an image of the hallowed Santo Nino, which, full and intact. 
is still standing to this day in St. Augustine's Church. Lost for quite a while after the din of battle 
and turmoil, there, amidst its ruin and debris, on April 28, 1565 a man by the name of Juan Ca- 
mus by a stroke of luck and fortune retrieved the statuary — thus recovering the most precious 
and tangible relic brought from a Kingdom by those who dared set foot on hostile shores. To top 
it all off, the first Catholic wedding ceremony took place in Cebu. An attractive scion of Kin;; 
Tupas was given in marriage by the chieftain himself to a soldier oi Legazpi. 1 hese and many more 
instances which need not be mentioned here are but a tew contributions (though not necessarily 
accomplishments) which Cebuanos can be proud of and the rest cannot ignore. 

Delve into the unturned pages of history and tread the beaten paths ot glory .\n^l find Cebu 
has much to answer to any question. It was the i rst rebel ever to rise against the Spanish rule- 
Translated into any language such unmitigated act is merely the love ol liberty and freedom. Let's 
leave this up to I.apu Lapu. Then, let history repeat itself. Since Cebu was the first to fight an in- 
vader, so by the grace of God — who knows — it might be the last to surrender. From pre-Spanish 
time up to now, Cebu had never trailed behind and, like the pioneers, shall be still blazing a trail.

SONNETS TO DENISE 

Copyright ©1969 
By JUVENCIO C. ALQUIZOLA 

REBIRTH - LXLVII 

Let those who may with all the pomp and show 

Ot riches lavish on the ones they love; 

While I in all my poverty bestow 

Upon my love the simple way to prove. 

Let all the bounty of the storied past 

Fill up the (-offer till it overflows; 

And 1 onto my utter dearth hold fast, 

Since 'tis not mine to stay the course that goes. 

Let one, let all do all the things they like, 

The eagle reach its eyry up so high 

Beyond our ken, let all that homeward strike; 

Or let the Phoenix reach the sun and die, 

But to renew itself and live again; — 

So does my love, reborn and rich, remain. 

THE DYING YEAR - LXLVIII 

On streaming fire across the endless sky, 

The fate of Phaethon, young and bold, was writ. 

The earth from east to west was scorched dry 

And all the world that day was left unlit 

For Phoebus mourned for him and stopped to do 

His duty to light up the world until 

The gods persuaded him his journey to 

Continue for the sake of earth and all. 

He did and does up to the present time. 

His loss that day, still with him up to now, 

Won't be forgot in reason or in rhyme: 

It is a wreath over Apollo's brow. 

Not fire nor water, I would write in ink, 
Were I to choose my way before I sink. 

THE NEW YEAR - LXLIX 

This year before us is the year to make. 

Learned from the past the future is to be; 

By present view we right the past mistake; 

What might have been is possibility. 

r'ject the old and usher in the new; 

The old and weary must now come to rest. 

Welcome, young child, I'll grow along with you. 

Let Cronus go, for you the very best. 

You, year of sorrows and you, year of joys, 

How often have I paired you like a twin, 

How often fondled so just like my toys 

In childhood though so few and far between! 

Auspicious hour that links the old to new. 

When you have done your days, I count mine, too. 

APOTHEOSIS - C 

I bow to Euterpe, fairest of the nine, 

Inspirer, bearer of Apollo's fire. 

She purifies to make his verses shine 

And calls the bards to play the tuneful lyre. 

You, Muse of lyric poetry, too often 

I have decried my fate before your shrine 

To bring forth offerings which might well soften 
Your heartstrings I have longed for to be mine. 
Such lot is mine in abject lack of fortune 
To lay before you lays of noble birth. 
Yet one and all betray me by the poor tune 
And should not have been borne nor sung on earth. 
You, sweetest of the Muses, tuneful nine, 
Where I have failed you. make the burden mine.

THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU 



On April 28, 15 65, Juan Camus, a sailor in Le- 
gazpi's fleet, found in a modest house of the then 
village of Cebu the Image of Santo Nino which at 
the time all agreed had been brought from Europe. 
Deeply impressed by this finding and aware of its sig- 
nificance, Legazpi ordered an official inquiry con- 
ducted; the document, drawn on May 16 of the same 
year and still extant in the archives of the Santo Nino 
Convent of Cebu, tells us from the testimony of eye- 
witnesses that the Image was found inside a small pine 
box, preserved in almost perfect condition; it had 
on a little shirt and a cap; two of its right hand's fin- 
gers were raised in a gesture of blessing, while the 
left hand held a globe symbolizing the world. 

In solemn procession the Image was carried 
to the provisional Church the Augustinian Fathers 
were using at the time; later, another Church was 
built on the exact location where the image had been 
found: this is the site of the Santo Nino Church where 
the Augustinian have cared for the Image and the 
Filipino people have venerated it through the cen- 
turies. 

An earlier authenticated entry in the Journal of 
Pigaffeta, clerk in the Magellan expedition, explains 
the origin of Santo Nino: on the day Queen Juana 
was baptized by Father Pedro Valderrama, chaplain 
of that expedition, Pigaffeta himself presented her 
with the Image. 

During the last War a bomb fell inside the Church, but the Image was found unscathed. At 
present, through the initiative and with the cooperation of the Augustinians and the Filipino peo- 
ple, the Santo Nino Church has been renovated in the interior and given the rank of Basilica, to 
make it a still more fitting shrine for the beloved Santo Nino, Comforter of the first missionaries 
and divine Protector of the Philippines.

For the past five years of hard work and struggle, through the cooperation of all 
our friends and the Filipino Community, we have reached our highest goal of celebrat- 
ing a glorious fiesta. 

I hope and pray that the unity and cooperation we have in our festival of the Santo 
Nino de Cebu will keep on in our hearts, not only today or tomorrow, but always. That, 
in spite of the bickerings among our fellow men each one of us will remember to say, 
"Forgive them Father, for they knew not what they are doing." 

To all the government officials and spiritual leaders here and abroad who have 
participated and joined us, our most heartfelt thanks. To the executive committee, of- 
ficers, and members of the Cebu Association, may the Santo Nino de Cebu be closer 
to you than ever.

Message 



To the Cebu Association of California and to all devotees of the Santo 
Nino de Cebu I wish to convey my cordial felicitations for a holy celebration 
of the Holy Child's Feastday which is a day of great rejoicing for all Ce- 
buanos. 

The devotion to the Santo Nino has been a source of countless blessings 
for all Cebuanos. It has made the people aware of the respect due to children 
as God's creatures bearing the image of Christ. Family life has been unified 
and strengthened by the veneration rendered to the Holy Child. This in 
itself aiready constitutes a great blessing to the People of God. 

The history of the Cebuano people cannot be separated from this popular 
devotion which has given many admirable and virtuous traits to the people 
of Cebu in general. Ours is the sincere wish to be united spiritually to all 
devotees of the Santo Nino during the holy celebrations on January 27, 1973. 

To you all I impart my fatherly blessings!

I am happy to congratulate you on the celebration of the annual 
fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu in San Francisco. My heart goes out 
to you in gratitude for the good you are doing. This country of ours, 
which is now your home, has been greatly benefited by organizations 
like yours, which contribute to our culture the enrichment of the beauti- 
ful elements of the Catholic culture which you bring to us. 

I pray God to bless each and every member of the Cebu Asssocia- 
tion with an abundance of divine graces during the New Year. 




Yours sincerely in Christ,

Message 



I welcome this opportunity to extend cordial greetings to all members 
of the Cebu Association of California during its celebration of the Feast 
of the Blessed Santo Nino in San Francisco on 27 January, 1973. 

Your annual celebration of this blessed occasion is the best proof 
that the span of time and distance has not at all diminished your memo- 
ries of home and events we mutually share and cherish as part of our 
way of life. 

It touches me deeply to be able to participate in such a religious event. 
To me the deep significance of this act of religions fervor is more meaning- 
ful than the outward gaiety experienced from the occasion. This is a time to rededicate ourselves once more 
to our rich heritage and our strong religious faith for we are a God fearing people. 
With best wishes for a very fruitful celebration. 

(Signed) TRINIDAD ALCONCEL

Upon the occasion of the annual fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu, it is a pleasure

It is my pleasure to once again extend warm greetings 
to San Francisco's Filipino community as you celebrate 
the annual fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu . 

The yearly commemoration of the discovery of the Image 
of Santo Nino demonstrates the significant role played 
by religion in the lives of Americans of Filipino descent. 
This profound belief in Christian ideals and principles 
has made Filipino-Americans loyal friends, good 
neighbors and outstanding citizens. 

My congratulations to this year's. Queen of Cebu and 
my best wishes to all for a memorable and most 
enjoyable fiesta.

SONNETS TO DENISE 

By Juvencio C. Alquizola 

Copyright © 1969 



FRONTISPIECE — I 

Desert me, Muse, and do it as never before: 
Destroy my verses and my songs forego; 
Forbid me, if you will, to try it once more, 
But leave this one alone for the one I know. 
You had forsaken me for many a year, 
Neither did I complain and make redress; 
Deaf to my songs banal and shrill to hear, 
Nor did I utter any grievances. 
But on this one alone forbid me not, 
Grant me the gift you had denied my pen. 
With her and you, Sweet Muse, I cast my lot, 
And hope my songs might never end in vain. 
One song alone might not suffice; at least 
Be it a hundred; then take all the rest. 



HIGH TIDE — II 

Grow on, Sweet Verse, grow with the rising tide! 

My heart is filled with you and I shall die 

With a heavy burden if I were denied 

An out'et to my heart's tide full and high! 

Grow with the trees that rise against the sky; 

Grow with the sun and stars that long endure; 

With men and women who shaped their destiny; 

Grow with the one I love for evermore! 

The star that guides the long-lost-seafarer 

Beyond the horizon leads him safe to land; 

Then be my star, Sweet Verse, and show me where 

Beyond life's horizon I may find the strand. 

Grow on, Sweet Verse, grow on, forever grow 
And, if need be, I'll grow along with you. 



BEQUEST — III 

When I contend with time about our age, 
And watch your rising star go towards noon, 
And hope that this your better days presage 
A pleasant journey should not stop too soon; 
And when my dying sun hastens to the west, 
Knowing the night would surely come for me 
When stars shine bright, yours shining with the rest, 
Watching my fading sun sink in the sea; 
Then I have reached the point of no return. 
Burning my sun out useless through the years, 
And wish on it your star wou'd slowly burn 
To fill with joys my empty life of cares. 
In this my will of love fearless of death. 
Long life to you this trust fund I bequeath. 



LA DOLCE VITA — IV 

How sweet is life, how sweet it is to live it — 
Considering all the cares that go with it! 
How sweet its tribulations to achieve it 
With all the stumbling blocks we try to fit. 
It's on the eternal hills where Poetry flowers, 
It's on the hunt where the hunter's quarry's mounted; 
It's in the search where lie those happy hours 
Along the weary trip of life undaunted. 
How great it is to live a life like this! 
Unmindful of the past, now and tomorrow. 
Oh! Life of life, your joy and happiness 
Are sweet and kindred to my pain and sorrow. 
Unflinchingly, unselfishly I'd give 
My life for this and for this let me live. 



ODE TO IDLENESS 

By Juvencio C. Alquizola 
COPYRIGHT © 1969 



Lazy Muse, on lazy days, 

Have these writ all in your praise: 

Be they frivolous and unlettered, 

Let them out of me unfettered. 

Let my dreams outlive the dreamer 

And my simple rhymes the rhymer. 

When a bird its sad songs warbles, 

Show me how to find those marbles 

Yet unhewn, lying in the quarry. 

Like Michelangelo's Carrara 

Let me touch them, let me chisel 

Till I carve the proper vessel 

To convey the sleeping beauty 

Hidden there! It is my duty 

To portray them as they should be, 

Not as I would wish they would be. 

Let me, no more than I have to, 

Nor less than that which I gave to, 

Write this ode for you and me, 

Since ive two are one in three — 

Lazy Muse, the day and me. 

If this dreamer ever end, 

Like the way great rivers wend 

To the sea, the whole sea wide, 

I've the advantage on my side. 

I can make my ivay go forward, 

If, adrift, my boat go shoreward! 

Oh, to be so lost to sea 

And unheard of to be free! 

Oh, Sweet Muse, all is not lost: 

We have our morale to boost; 

There's a lot more to be gained, 

If we lose it in the end. 

They the land have, ice the sea, 

So the greater part have we. 

llilder seas are yet to be 

Traveled by my Muse and me! 

Lei them stay on land and ice 

With great pleasure put to sea. 

We shall brave the roughest weather, 

Hand in hand we'll go together 

To the zenith or the nadir. 

Drink i<> Bacchus a few rounds, 

See Diana and her hounds. 

If a neophyte would seduce you, 

Just ignore him, lei him use you. 

He'll pay later what he owes you, 

Make believe he truly knows you. 
Load him with hyperbole, 
\nl the simple simile. 

Sari the liquid from tin' solid, 
Like an epic from n ballad: 
Stationary from the transient. 
Like the neophyte from the ancient. 
Crook your finger and I'll folloic 
In yam footsteps ileep or shallow. 

I. ei me scale, beyond my sight, 
The Empyrean slopes and height; 

I, el mi' wander by their streams. 

If not really, by my dreams. 

I erSCS can. but not like mine. 

Reach those heights ami therefore shi 

Lazy Muse, yum day and mine.

THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU 



On April 28, 15 65, Juan Camus, a sailor in Le- 
gazpi's fleet, found in a modest house of the then 
village of Cebu the Image of Santo Nino which at 
the time all agreed had been brought from Europe. 
Deeply impressed by this finding and aware of its sig- 
nificance, Legazpi ordered an official inquiry con- 
ducted; the document, drawn on May 16 of the same 
year and still extant in the archives of the Santo Nino 
Convent of Cebu, tells us from the testimony of eye- 
witnesses that the Image was found inside a small pine 
box, preserved in almost perfect condition; it had 
on a little shirt and a cap; two of its right hand's fin- 
gers were raised in a gesture of blessing, while the 
left hand held a globe symbolizing the world. 

In solemn procession the Image was carried 
to the provisional Church the Augustinian Fathers 
were using at the time; later, another Church was 
built on the exact location where the image had been 
found: this is the site of the Santo Nino Church where 
the Augustinian have cared for the Image and the 
Filipino people have venerated it through the cen- 
turies. 

An earlier authenticated entry in the Journal of 
Pigaffeta, clerk in the Magellan expedition, explains 
the origin of Santo Nino: on the day Queen Juana 
was baptized by Father Pedro Valderrama, chaplain 
of that expedition, Pigaffeta himself presented her 
with the Image. 

During the last War a bomb fell inside the Church, but the Image was found unscathed. At 
present, through the initiative and with the cooperation of the Augustinians and the Filipino peo- 
ple, the Santo Nino Church has been renovated in the interior and given the rank of Basilica, to 
make it a still more fitting shrine for the beloved Santo Nino, Comforter of the first missionaries 
and divine Protector of the Philippines.

MESSAGE 

Fit Senor! This is the leverberating religious cry 
familiar and dear to every Cebuano heart. Pit Senor! 
This has resoundingly echoed through the centuries 
summarizing the hopes, faith, plaints and joys of 
thousands ot devotees of the Blessed Child. 

On bended knees or on dancing feet, the Cebuano 
re-echo this supplication for divine assistance of his 
heavenly protector. God has willed that this reli- 
gious and miraculous image be c:adled in this tiny 
historic isle and the Cebuanos, since Magellan's time, 
have been zealously watching over and taking charge 
of the most venerable and priceless image of our 
country. Cebauanos, far and near, are united with 
this religious bond of affection for the Blessed Child. 

I join my co-provincianos — The Cebu Associa- 
tion of San Francisco, California — in the annual 
rejoicing over and the celebration of the feast of 
Santo Nino. It is with a special warm pleasure to 
greet you all and may Senor Santo Nino continue 
to spread His mantle of protection over you.

To the Cebu People of San Francisco: 

The Clergy of St. Patrick's are indeed pleased 
to welcome you on the occasion of your annual cele- 
bration which with the devotion you have to the 
"Santo Nino" so strongly points up the Sacred 
Humanity of our Divine Savior. 

It is indeed encouraging to be part of such a 
celebration which brings the cherished devotions of 
your homeland to your adopted country. 

The Filipino people have given much to America 

but no gift is of more lasting value than the lesson 

you teach in Faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Gratefully yours,

MESSAGE 

My warmest felicitations to the Cebu Association 
of San Francisco, California on the occasion of the 
yearly Pyesta Senor in honor of the Santo Nino. It 
is but fitting that you celebrate this annual fete to 
renew your ties with our Cebuano community here. 

I am glad that you share with us here the spirit 
of thanksgiving to the Holy Child for whatever be- 
nefits we have received in the past year. No doubt, 
we owe to the Santo Nino the blessings of peace 
and prosperity of our Country. But we have to pray 
much more fervently to Him, considering the many 
nations of Asia which are presently plagued by the 
ugly spectre of war. 

Wishing ycu all the success in your celebrations 
and in union with the Holy Child, I impart to you 
all my fatherly blessings.

SONNETS TO DENISE 

By Juvencio C. Alquizola 



COPYRIGHT r 1969 



Boreas — The Northwind — Winter 

When the Northwind blows it sighs and I find me tinging 
Of the days that saw my first love still to be. 
And the wind it said, "Go back, I am not bringing 
The heart of your love, the thing you want of me. ' 
The birds the, would not twitter the whole day long, 
For winter had come and to stay but overnight. 
And it said to the birds, "I do not need your song, 
Nor his heart whose love is set at first sight." 
And as the Northwind sighed so did I sigh 
A sigh of relief for the one I had left at home. 
Together we sighed and found the reason why- 
There is more to stay at home for than to roam. 

When the Northwind comes back and still does not bring 
The heart of my love, like the birds. I shall wait for Spring. 



Eurus — The Eastwind — Spring 

What can relieve the pain of Earth's sweet bosom 

Winter had left her not so long ago? 

What ran abate the blast that makes plants blossom? 

But Spring whom Nature gives the power to. 

So I must sing of Springtime and of sowing 

Seeds in the fields of waking Earth still aching; 

And feel the tender touch of the Eastwind blowing. 

And thrill to the sight of buds and seeds just breaking! 

And I will make her posies fresh to wear, 

And make her furrows moist for the night. 

That she might be the mother fit to bear 

The fairer offsprings of the world's delight. 
What Winter all to ruin seemed to bring, 
Have since been pent up in the womb of Spring. 



Zypherus — The Westwind — Summer 

You, too, on whom the poets waste their time. 

Shall never go unnoticed when you blow! 

Blow when you wish but spare one for my rhyme 

Where your relebrity contributes to. 

1 would not make you such a prophecy 

Like him who eulogizes fall as one 

Which yearly does precede the vernal spree 

And spring which follows suit till summer's on. 

Oh. how you rightly fit in Nature's plan! 

You fourth wheel of a potent force, when you 

Join the ranks of power, what is man 

With his endeavors but a toy for you! 

So right you are! we cannot live without you. 

Invisible and yet we never doubt vou. 



Auster — The Southwind — Autumn 

Twister of phrases, opener of leaves, 

The birds in winter winter in the South. 

Bring on the warmth of hearts, the grain in sheaves, 

Put on the right words into my own mouth! 

I've sought you too, sweet Auster, all the time, 

Since when I learned to build my tyro-blocks: 

And where you taught me how to build a rhyme, 

I'm also grateful for your learned-socks. 

For I have been in love with you, sweet I.a>s. 

And in the art of silent I'oesy, 

There is no time to waste away nor pass, 

But always in your carrel's secrecy. 

Tw ister of phrases, opener of leaves, 

Bring on the warmth of hearts, the grain in sheaves.

HISTORY OF 



THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU 



On April 2S, 15 6 5, Juan Camus, a sailor in Le- 
gazpi's fleet, found in a modest house of the then 
village of Cebu the Image of Santo Nino which at 
the time all agreed had been brought from Europe. 
Deeply impressed by this finding and aware of its sig- 
nificance, Legazpi ordered an official inquiry con- 
ducted; the document, drawn on May 16 of the same 
year and still extant in the archives of the Santo Nino 
Convent of Cebu, tells us from the testimony of eye- 
witnesses that the Image was found inside a small pine 
box, preserved in almost perfect condition; it had 
on a little shirt and a cap; two of its right hand's fin- 
gers were raised in a gesture of blessing, while the 
left hand held a globe symbolizing the world. 

In solemn procession the Image was carried 
to the provisional Church the Augustinian Fathers 
were using at the time; later, another Church was 
built on the exact location where the image had been

During the last War a bomb fell inside the Church, but the Image was found unscathed. At

ple, the Santo Nino Church has been renovated in the interior and given the rank of Basilica, to 
make it a still more fitting shrine for the beloved Santo Nino, Comforter of the first missionaries

QUEEN'S MESSAGE 

The thoughts of religious observance come to us as we celebrate the feast of our most 
beloved Patron Saint, the Santo Nino de Cebu. It is inherent upon us that we, the Filipinos in 
general, subscribed to this kind or ideology where religion plays a role in our everyday life. 

My sincerest thanks to the officers and members of the Cebu Association of California, 
which made this fiesta of great success and to each one who supported me morally, and finan- 
cially, to reign in this festivity as the Queen of Cebu. 

QUEEN CYNTHIA I

MESSAGE 



It is with great pleasure I extend to one and all my warmest greetings on the occa- 
sin of the annual Fiesta of Santo Nino, beloved Patron Saint of Cebu. 

As president of the Cebu Association of California, Inc., I wish to state that this 
event is indeed very significant to all of us who seek spiritual guidance in our daily lives. 
I also invite each and everyone to consider this celebration as an opportunity to renew 
our devotion to His everlasting love and benevolence. 

As we celebrate this event, let us rededicate ourselves to the Infant Jesus; let us 
reflect on His humility. His power and influence over our lives, so that in the end, we 
shall merit His blessings and eternal love.

MESSAGE 

During my reign as the Cebu Queen for the year 1974, I 
experienced a great deal of change in our society. As an indi- 
vidual, each of us have a purpose in life, which requires a cons- 
tant move; in the outcome of one's experience, we must be 
susceptible to change. 

Now time has come for me to be susceptible to the change 
of no longer holding the title as being a Cebu Queen of 1974. 
We progress into the year of 1975, which brings forth a new 
Cebu Queen, a new year, and again an experience of a chang-

I hope the succeeding Cebu Queen for the year or 1975 will enjoy and appreciate

MESSAGE 

I greet my brother Cebuanos on the occasion 
of the 7th annual celebration of our Patron Saint 
Senor Santo Nino, which is also the patron saint 
of the City and Province of Cebu. 

The significance of this traditional celebration 
looms on a larger perspective when viewed from 
the current world-wide crises that beset the 
human race in terms of food shortages, the ener- 
crisis, the atomic arms race, and armed conflicts 
in some places of the earth. 

While we have preserved the essence of this 
traditional rites when our great grandfathers 
sought refuge in His divine protection from na- 
tural calamities and maladies to our ancient vil- 
lage, more than ever today we fervently suppli- 
cate our beloved Patron Saint to preserve the 
peace and tranquility of our prosperous com- 
munity. 

This, for me, is the substance and meaning of 
the yearly celebration. 

Cebu City, December 26, 1974.

MESSAGE 

It is my distinct pleasure and privilege to 
greet the good people of San Francisco, Califor- 
nia, with my heartfelt wishes on this happy oc- 
casion, the Seventh Annual Celebration of the 
Santo Nino de Cebu. 

I sincerely share with the belief of the Christ- 
ian world that man's efforts in life are only fruit- 
ful and rewarding when done in likeness to the 
designs of the Almighty. Bending the knees in 
genuflection — celebrating a joyful possibility 
in thanksgiving — and giving a time for spiritual 
rededication of an individual to the Great Creator 
are virtues which transcends the time barriers 
between the past, the present and the future. 
For this noble virtue. I commend our devout 
brothers and sisters in this progressive com- 
munity. 

Let me reiterate my warmest regards to you 
all, coupled with my fervent prayer that our 
endeared Santo Nino de Cebu would continue 
to intercede for us so that we may consistently 
live in the graces of the Lord.

THE ROSE - V 

You are the rose I write on every page, 

The fir>t and new-born life for which I wait! 

And you shall be the prop to my old age 

When I no more tan walk with jaunty gait. 

And you shall be my sight when I no more 

Can see this beauteous world that I have loved; 

Yet see what I have never seen before, 

Although my senses are from me removed. 

Thus will I see forever through your eyes 

And through your children's children when I'm gone. 

One who shall see forever never dies: 

Life still remains above and lingers on. 

I'll see newfangled things of days to be 
Or, take a good glimpse on posterity. 




ON HER BIRTHDAY, OCT. 23, 1966 - VI 

What can I give you on your day of birth? 
Not roses, Sweetheart, for they fade too soon; 
If they be jewels, such will I bring forth, 
But they are not an everlasting boon. 
A gift of love is one which lasts forever; 
Ask any bard who does believe in me. 
It is a gift from God, hence it will never 
Wilt like a rose or wear like jewelry. 
Whoever said that love is but a name. 
He lies and I can prove it by my rhyme. 
Love such as this ever shall be the same 
From the beginning to the end of time! 

Love is more powerful than hateful time; 
It's all-consuming, even with my rhyme. 



IN HOC SIGNO VINCES - VII 

My verses seem to thrive on time and rhyme; 
By this I doubt so much if they would live. 
I'm sure it is not what I take from time. 
Rather from rhyme to time such as I give. 
Love is to give and not to take away 
For anything one takes away but dies; 
Like life and light, love has power to sway 
Over the world, In Hoc Signo Vinces. 
He gave His life to save the world love gives 

And never takes away. "No greater love 
Has man than this . . ." with as this love -till live- 
No greater truth has man than this to prove. 

If this be falsehood or a tale so tall. 
\-k Him for it and He will give you all. 



RESIGNATION - VIII 

If time could end <l know that it will never) 
There goes its name to nothingness an end; 
If lo\e could die 1 1 know it is forever) 
There goe- it- twain with emptiness to blend. 

But love and time can never cease to be 

Since both were never born and can be seen. 

Time goes on qnietlj through etemitj 

While love is vocal in the heart- of men. 
Bird- on the Ireetop- do their fledgling fed 
\nd other form- of life during their prime. 
Is this not love and care and love indeed? 
\nd in their growth we -ee the hand- of time. 

(ih! beautiful love, !»• mj queen of rhyme 
Before ID) \er lo re-ign to time.

HISTORY OF 



THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU 










1565 - Santo Nino de Cebu . 1976 



On April 28, 1565, Juan Camus, a sailor in Legazpi's 
fleet, found in a modest house of the then village of Cebu 
the Image of Santo Nino which at the time all agreed 
had been brought from Europe. Deeply impressed by this 
finding and aware of its significance, Legazpi ordered an 
official inquiry conducted; the document, drawn on May 
16 of the same year and still extant in the archives of the 
Santo Nino Convent of Cebu, tells us from the testimony 
of eye-witnesses that the Image was found inside a small 
pine box, preserved in almost perfect condition; it had 
on a little shirt and a cap; two of its right hand's fingers 
were raised in a gesture of blessing, while the left hand 
held a globe symbolizing the world. 

In solemn procession the Image was carried to the 
provisional Church the Augustinian Fathers were using at the time; later, another Church was 
built on the exact location where the image had been found: this is the site of the Santo Nino 
Church where the Augustinians have cared for the Image and the Filipino people have venerated 
it through the centuries. 

An earlier authenticated entry in the Journal of Pigaffeta, clerk in the Magellan expedi- 
tion, explains the origin of Santo Nino: on the day Queen Juana was baptized by Father Pedro 
Valderrama, chaplain of that expedition, Pigaffeta himself presented her with the Image. 

During the last War a bomb fell inside the Church, but the Image was found un- 
scathed. At present, through the initiative and with the cooperation of the Augustinians and 
the Filipino people, the Santo Nino Church has been renovated in the interior and given the 
rank of Basilica, to make it a still more fitting shrine for the beloved Santo Nino, Comforter of 
the first missionaries and divine Protector of the Philippines. 



From the Novena Copyright in 1960 by the Augustinian Fathers in Cebu City, 
Philippine Islands 




MESSAGE 

On behalf of the Cebu Association of California 
U.S.A., my family and I take pleasure in welcoming 
you all to the Eighth Annual grandest fiesta celebra- 
tion in honor of our Patron Saint, Sehor Santo Nino. 

History records Cebu as the seat of Christianity 
in the Philippines. Brought by the Spanish colonizers 
as a present to King Humabon of Cebu, the Santo 
Nino has been venerated by Filipino devotees. Seve- 
ral miracles have been attributed to the Holy Image. 

Even when Cebu was destroyed by fire in the 
battle between the natives and Legaspi, where the 
colonizer was the victor, the Holy Image was found 
intact by a sailor in a village in the Island. Bombs during World War II devastated the 
Island, and the church where the Santo Nino was enshrined was not spared, and yet 
the Santo Nino was found unscratched. 

The Miraculous image is now housed in the Basilica Minor in Magallanes Street, 
Cebu City, which was built in its honor, and, across, the Cross planted by Magellan, 
the discoverer of the Philippines. 

We are far away from home. Yet we find ourselves bounden to our cultural heri- 
tage. Brotherhood among Filipinos is not a rarity. 

It is indeed gratifying to note that we Filipinos have maintained such admirable 
traits. As we celebrate this Eighth Annual fiesta in honor of our Patron Saint, may we 
hope the propagation of faith and devotion among mankind will lead us to love and 
peace on earth. 

On this occasion, my warmest felicitation to the officers and members of the 
Association. Let this goodwill be the guiding spirit of our future action in the fulfill- 
ment of our endeavour.

PRESIDENTS MESSAGE 

It is with profound honor that I greet all the officers, 
members, friends and supporters of the Cebu Association of 
California on the occasion of the Eighth Annual Fiesta of 
the Santo Nino of Cebu. 

It is my privilege to preside over the affairs of this great 
organization and, at this instance, allow me to extend my 
most sincere thanks and appreciation to committee chair- 
persons, committee members and to one and all who made 
possible the success of this fiesta. We have worked together 
harmoniously in efforts to venerate the Patron Saint of 
Cebu, as well as in other activities and it is fitting to recog- 
nize the fact that this celebration has enriched us all in terms of reaffirming our faith in God as 
members of the Catholic Faith. 

Let this occasion be a uniting force for the Cebu Association of California to seek greater 
accomplishments today and in the future as we express our abiding love for Santo Nino in the best 
tradition of honoring him in prayers and graces. Let us lead in strengthening our family ties and 
perpetuate our religious culture as part of the values that we bestow upon the coming gene- 
rations of Filipino-Americans. Our efforts alone in charting our course in this direction shall 
be rewarding. 

Allow me, too, to congratulate this year's Queen and her Court and may their reign be 
most memorable and successful. 

I am most gratified by our organization's oneness in honestly preserving the influence of 
Santo Nino in our lives as a guiding force for us to work harder than ever in order to provide for 
other needs of our members. We hope that our togetherness in Santo Nino may be the same devo- 
tion we hold for furthering the objectives and aims of the Cebu Association of California. 

Furthermore, it is my desire to inculcate upon our youth that this fiesta should remind 
them of the rich and proud heritage of the Filipinos as a people. It should be stated that the reli- 
gious conquest of the Philippines by the West, only inflamed the Filipinos' love for independence 
and freedom. This expression of freedom and liberty took place in Mactan, Cebu, not very far 
from the Shrine of the Beloved Santo Nino. 

In closing, please allow me again to thank each and every officer, member and those who 
worked hard to make this year's celebration a very meaningful and most successful ever. 
God bless us all. Mabuhay!

GREETINGS 



It is indeed my pleasure as your Mayor to extend my best wishes on behalf of the people 
of San Francisco to the Filipino Community on the occasion of the annual fiesta of the Santo 
Nino de Cebu. 

San Francisco is blessed as a City rich with the cultural heritage of peoples from through- 
out the world. The Filipino community of San Francisco has played an important and vital role 
in our City. All San Franciscans are justly proud of our great Filipino community and I join with 
them in extending our best wishes for a memorable and exciting celebration on January 24 as 
well as our best hopes for the new year.

MESSAGE 

It is a pleasure to greet the officers and members of the Cebu Association of 
California on the occasion of the 8th Annual Fiesta celebration of the Santo Nino de 
Cebu. The province of Cebu prides itself in a colorful past which is historical as well 
as religious. It was on the island of Cebu where Ferdinand Magellan sealed a blood 
compact with Humabon in 1521 and later lost his life in Mactan at the hands of the 
intrepid warrior Lapu-Lapu. The first Catholic mission was founded in Cebu which was 
the old capital of the Philippines. The image of the Santo Nino and the cross of Magellan 
stand today as eloquent reminders of the early Christianization of our country. 

The diverse groups of Filipinos overseas must be brought closer under the aegis 
of a common identity. In the attainment of this goal, our mutual efforts should be di- 
rected. And one effective enterprise is that which your Association has seen fit to 
undertake over the past years when Filipino residents in various counties of the State 
of California and beyond take time out from their routine chores to gather in a FIES- 
TA in the best traditions of the Filipino. 

I feel hopeful that, as you enjoy this year's festivities presided by Queen Delilah 
and her court to whom go my special greetings and congratulations, you will resolve 
to forge among yourselves that spirit of "bayanihan" for which the Filipino has long 
b^en admired. 

Best wishes to all! (Signed) ROMEO A. ARGUELLES

MESSAGE 
To the Cebu Association of California: 

I am happy to know about your deep interest in celebrating 
the devotion to Sr. Santo Nino. 

This devotion shows how much we appreciate the Word of 
God made man. We ought then to follow up more intensely and 
make Christian principles, such as love, mercy, justice, honesty 
and forgiveness, a part of our way of life. Thus our Christianity 
can be deeper and more genuine. 
Allow me to extend to you all, officers and members of the Cebu Association of California, 
my heartfelt congratulations for the occasion, with the assurance of my prayers and blessings.

My dear friends: 

I have been very happy to know that the Cebu Association of California 
has arranged for the celebration of a high noon Mass at St. Patrick's Church, 
with a liturgical procession, and that this Mass will be preceded by a novena 
in honor of the Infant Jesus. 

I wish that it were possible for me to participate in these splendid events. 
Unfortunately, however, I am already obligated to other functions, appoint- 
ments for which have been made well in advance. I assure you that my thoughts 
and prayers will be with you, with the confident hope that Good will bless all 
the members of the Association with an abundance of divine grace and provi- 
dential protection throughout the New Year.

MESSAGE 



Living far away from home makes every occasion like this 
one event of great joy. It is an opportunity to share with our 
friends in the Cebu Association of California the celebration 
of the fiesta of the Santo Nino. It is an opportunity for the 
renewal of communal ties, and for the fostering of coopera- 
tion. It should also serve us as a reminder that in another cul- 
ture and another society, it is essential that we maintain the 
best in our cultural values which are threatened with erosion. 

(Signed) JOHN H. OSMEfiA

Religious heritage is upon us as we celebrate the annual 
•fiesta of our Patron Saint, Santo Nino de Cebu. This 8th year 
of celebration, sponsored by the Cebu Association of Califor- 
nia, is a symbolic representation that Christianity is still deep 
in our hearts. 

The unflinging efforts and coordination of the officiers and 
members of the Association deserves commendation, for with- 
out which, this fete would not materialize. 

I wish to impart my sincerest thanks to each and everyone, 
especially to those who, morally and financially, assisted me 
to reign in this festivity. 

(Sgd.) DELILAH 
(Queen of CAC, 1976-77)

On behalf of the officers and members of the Cebu Association of California, 
who made my reign a great success, it is my pleasure to extend my sincerest thanks to 
all. During my reign, I learned a lot of things and met different kinds of people in the 
society. 

Now, it is my time to give away my title as the Queen of Cebu 1975. I hope that 
the succeeding Queen of Cebu feels the same as I do. Maghina-ut unta ako nga mag- 
malipayon kamong tanan sa umaabot pang ubang Fiesta. May God be with you all!

ST PATRICK'S CHURCH

San Francisco 94103 

TO THE CEBU ASSOCIATION AND 
ALL FRIENDS OF THE SANTO NINO: 

May the nine days of prayer that culminated 
in a concelebrated Mass in honor of Santo Nino 
de Cebu serve to remind us of the gifts we, 
through the richness of our heritage, can give 
to our world today: an imitation of the simpli- 
city and innocence of a child and the humility 
of God who consents to become one of us. May 
this shared rejoicing in the things of God, a 
reflection of our living faith, make us one in 
His family. 

Sincerely yours in Christ, 

REV. FRED AL BITANGA 




ST. CECILIA CHURCH 

TO THE CEBU ASSOCIATION: 

My congratulations to all of you for having 
achieved unity among Filipinos and for having 
fostered the devotion to Santo Nino, the Patron 
of Cebu. 

This celebration brings us the memory of the 
great donation of us catholics to the Holy In- 
fant. The Basilica in Cebu is the most frequent- 
ed Church of Cebuanos because the authentic 
miraculous image of Santo Nino is enthroned 
in that Church. May this celebration and devo- 
tion bring us closer to Jesus and let us live an 
authentic Christian life patterned after that 
Jesus Himself. I would like to congratulate the 
officers and members of this organization for 
the good work they are doing in the community 
and to the Holy Infant Jesus. 
God bless you.

So merrily the fauns and satyrs dance, 
The fair nymphs frolic in the woodland glens, 
And. led by Bacchus, bacchanals leap and prance. 
Here for a change I lie on Arcadian scenes; 
Who would not like to feast with such a bunch, 
To enjoy a draught or two of vintage rare, 
To taste of sumptuous morsels for a brunch, 
And for desserts such fruits beyond compare? 
Still in these glades I see sad Echo pine 
Her life away for a boy lost to himself, 
Still see the laurels and the ivies twine, 
Where mortals live like gods, hence not for pelf. 
'Tis good to steal into the sylvan glades 
Where Pan blows pipe of reeds beneath the shades 

XCIV 

You tuneful pipe of reeds that once before 

Was lovely Syrinx fleeing from god Pan, 

Play on your melody and flee no more 

And be an instrument for mortal man ! 

Not of the Lydian air or Lycacus, 

Nor of the classic groves of Thessaly; 

Not of Bellerophon and Pegasus, 

But of eternal youth and chastity! 

Play on for whom I love, play on for me, 

Not for Diana whom you emulate, 

Nor of the meandering streams of Arcady, 

But of this love next to my heart and fate. 
Ob, virgin nymph. I'll be your paramour 
To tend you in your needs, then, flee no more. 

xcv 

Here in the woods the sound of Pan prevails 
And Hermes conies again but for the hunt; 
And Artemis, fair huntress, never fails 
To show her skill at hunting; and the stunt 
The other deities are about to give 
Ariadne's marriage to the god of wine. 
From here on in she shall no longer grieve 
Over her loss, her crown shall henceforth shine. 
You happy deities, beat me to the hill; 
Outrun me and outshine my better days; 
Do you your best; outwit me, if you will, 
Bui spare the sail songs for the one I praise! 

V ou woods, reverberate with Pans refrain. 
And I, a mortal, shall still sing of pain. 

XCVI 

l.ri ii ii- be sad amidst this revelrv 
And go on pining for the one I love; 
II sorrow be my lot, then give to me 
The worst of it thai pain may even prove 
\ fair exchange of what I bargain for. 
Reserve for her the happiness to last 
Her life and may she prosper ever more! 
And this for me — the bitter dregs to taste. 
Give her the strength however long the way, 
The courage in the midst of dark despair. 
Patience to solve hard problems day by day,

SATUMNALIA 

By Juvencio C. Alquizola 

Copyright © 1969 



XCVII 

Salurn, Titan of Titans, in your wild reign. 

Yon draw us to a vortex none escapes. 

Sooner or later vou devour your children, 

Save Pluto sowing naught but bitter grapes, 

And Neptune over water, salt and fresh, 

And Jupiter of thunderbolts and air. 

Although your age be golden we still raise 

A protest against your tyranny; we dare 

The feats we mortals never could achieve — 

To overthrow vou so we may live ever. 

Like him who tried to, we no longer grieve 

Over our fate on earth and so die never. 

Forgive me if I call your rule a wild reign: 

It serves you right when you devour your children! 

xcvm 

Saturn, without beginning nor an end, 

I shudder when I think of you; you foist 

On us your arrogance and make us bend 

To vour desire; but always we have voiced 

Against the injustice you do us on earth. 

Have it your way and from your power give 

To us eternity, sans death, sans birth, 

That we, in spite of all, forever live. 

Man's master over land and sea and space, 

Yet still vou hold dominion over all. 

What have you left us but a little place 

To bide you and succumb to a needless call! 

Then be not proud of your enormous power, 
For you'll be with me on mv final hour. 

xcix 

Come, Bacchus, lead us, one and all, and revel 
Into the night! you satyrs and you maenads, 
You bacchanals and vou centaurs, let's be civil 
To each other while we celebrate the zenith 
Of Saturn's golden era! King of Titans, 
Command us at your will, with heads beneath 
Your feet and he it well with our obeisance 
To life on borrowed time and life in death. 
Lead, Bacchus, till the day disrobes the night, 
And takes away the jewels which she wears. 
We look in awe at Saturn's glorious flight 
On its continuous span over the years. 

Brule Titan, since you've had us by the belt. 
We now resign and help vou to the hilt. 

c 

To usher in the storm the clouds grow dark 
Shrouds wrapping Heaven's face with clothes >n black. 
Alone I'll brave the sea that holds my bark 
\\ il limit a siren song to lure me hack. 
What though the night he black, the storm be henl 
To make my bark veer off on a colder clime. 
Lightnings let loose hell out and thunders rent. 
\1\ heart shall yet arise above this rhyme. 
A charm there i-. I'll always have with me. 
M\ firm belief thai life and love are lasting. 
Might belp me tide o'er nights and days t" be 
Where every moment counts when life i« wasting. 
Yet, il yon don 1 1 1 me. this you must believe 

Vhove their ashes life and love still live.

THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU 




The Marble Chapel 



On April 28, 1565, Juan Camus, a sailor in 
Legaspi's fleet, found in a modest house of 
the then village of Cebu the Image of Santo 
Nino which at the time all agreed had been 
brought from Europe. Deeply impressed by 
this finding and aware of its significance, 
Legaspi ordered an official inquiry conducted; 
the document, drawn on May 16 of the same 
year and still extant in the archives of the 
Santo Nino Convent of Cebu, tells us from 
the testimony of eyewitnesses that the Image 
was found inside a small pine box, preserved 
in almost perfect condition; it had on a little 
shirt and a cap; two of its right hand's fingers 
were raised in a gesture of blessing, while the 
left hand held a globe symbolizing the world. 

In solemn procession the Image was carried to 
the provisional Church the Augustinian 
Fathers were using at the time; later, another 
Church was built on the exact location where 
the Image had been found: this is the site of 
the Santo Nino Church where the Augustin- 
ians have cared for the Image and the Filipino 
people have venerated it through the cen- 
turies. 




Santo Nino de Cebu 



As earlier authenticated entry in the Journal of 
Pigaffeta, clerk in the Magellan expedition, 
explains the origin of Santo Nino: on the day 
Queen Juana was baptized by Father Pedro 
Valderrama, chaplain of that expedition, 
Pigafetta himself presented her with the Image. 

During the last World War, a bomb fell inside the 
Church but the Image was found unscathed. It 
was one of the numberless miracles and powers 
attributed to the Holy Image. 

At the instance and initiative of the Rev. Fr. 
Restituto Suarcz, O.S.A., author of this Novena, 
the interior of the historic church was renovated 
in 1965 for the observance of the Fourth Cen- 
tenary of the Christianization of the Philippines 
held in Cebu City. It was during this centennial 
celebration that the church, on April 1, 1965, 
was elevated to the rank of Basilica Minore by 
the Sacred Congregation of Rites with all the 
rights and privileges accruing to such title. 



With the full cooperation of the Augustinian 
Community and the Filipino people and sanc- 
tioned by the National Historical Commission of 
the Philippines, Fr. Restituto Suarez has built a 
marble chapel inside the Basilica. Construction 
of the chapel began in August, 1975. This fitting 
shrine of Santo Nino now serves as the main 
center of devotion of Catholic Philippines. Here 
the miraculous Image, Who is the comforter of 
the first missionaries and now Patron of the Phil- 
ippines, is being venerated and honored. 

To preserve and develop national identity, Pres- 
ident Ferdinand E. Marcos has, on August 1, 
1973, declared the Basilica and Convent of 
Santo Nino as a National Shrine together with 
other historical places in the Philippines.

History of the Cebu Association 

Sprouted from a seed which was once a dream gathered a 
small group of people who hail from the particular province 
of Cebu, Philippines. That seed then begun to take roots 
which is now the well-known Cebu Association of Califor- 
nia Inc. The Association sponsors the Annual Fiesta of the 
Santo Nino de Cebu Week in San Francisco every January 
each year which has received public recognition not only in 
California but all over the United States of America and 
other parts of the world. 

The hardships and struggles of the members have up to this 
day made the Cebu Association a strong organization proud 
of its ideals and the realization of its dream a most spec- 
tacular and magnificent cultural and traditional celebration, 
the Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu, which not only 
Cebuanos but all Filipinos in the United States can be 
proud of. 

To His Eminence, Joseph T. McGucken, Archbishop of San 
Francisco, Monsignor C. J. McKenna of St. Patrick's Church 
and all the Filipino and American priests from far and 
near, thank you for offering the Mass in honor of the Santo 
Nino. To the most Honorable George R. Moscone, Mayor of 
San Francisco we salute you for the proclamation of the 
Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu Week, for the arrange- 
ment of the procession of the Miraculous Santo Nino, for 
the honor you have given us, to serve during the procession 
and mass in His Honor and for crowning our Empress of the 
Festival. To Honorable Romeo Arguelles, Consul General of 
the Republic of the Philippines, our most heartfelt thanks 
for your cooperation by showing your love and devotion 
in our celebrations; Honorable Judge Lee Vavuris, City and 
County of San Francisco for the years you have sacrificed 
with us, you're just great! To my colleague Commissionei 
Margo Warnecke for her cooperation and to our college 
instructor Mrs. Portia Bautista for being with us. To the 
governor of Cebu, Eddie Gull. is, Mayor Eulogio Borres of

To the South of Luzon is a cluster of islands, the most densely populated of which is Cebu. 
Cebu City; the oldest city in the country, is its capital. 

In the Plaza of Cebu City stands a large hollow cross protecting an old inner cross which 

was planted by Magellan on Philippine soil when he and his soldiers celebrated their 

first Mass in the islands in 1521. Nearby is the beautiful church of San Agustin 

(now the Basilica Minore) where rests the most ancient image of the country, 

the Santo Nino (Holy Child), around which revolves many stories handed 

down from generation to generation. One believes that image to have 

been presented by Magellan to the wife of a Cebu chieftain upon her 

conversion to Christianity, and recovered 40 years later after the 

arrival of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi who got the conversion and 

colonization of the islands underway. Another story, believed 

to be authentic, is related by an Agustinian friar. Upon the 

arrival of Legaspi in Cebu, the natives, so the story goes, 

burned their houses and fled to the mountains in fear. 

A soldier, by the name of Juan Camus, noticed while 

patrolling the area, that one nipa hut was spared 

by the flames which had enveloped the whole place. 

He entered the house and on the floor saw a 

beautiful wooden box bound with a strong 

rope. Inside the box was still another box 

in which the Holy Child was laid. The 

tiny image has been venerated for 

centuries as a miraculous symbol

MESSAGE. 



1 



THE annual celebration of the Fiesta of Santo Nino 
in San Francisco, California, deserves my support and 
cooperation as Rector of the Basilica del Santo Nino 
in which " the only surviving relic of Magellan's vo- 
yage, the figure of the Christ Child is preserved in 
the Basilica del Santo Nino in the Philippines city 
of Cebu"( National Geographic Vol. 149, no. 6, June 1976). 

The numberless faithful who come to Cebu to witness 
and participate in the religious activities and yearly 
procession, and to give thanks to Santo Nino for special 
graces and favors they had received in the past is something 
worth of seeing and watching. The Marble Chapel in which 
the venerated and centuries-old Image of Santo Nino is 
at present encased in gilded and bulletproof glass is 
becoming the center of attraction and pilgrimage of 
hundreds and hundreds of devotees and tourists. Needless 
to say that the devotion to"Sehor Santo Nino" de Cebu is 
taking new outgrowth. 

Cognizant of the enthusiasm and devotion of Mrs. Sally 
B. Famarin of San Francisco, U.S.A., for the Santo Nino 
of Oebu, the Augustinian Fathers of the Basilica del Santo 
Nino in the city of Cebu have unanimously appointed her 
HONORARY HERMANA MAYOR for the year 1977. 

Let me avail of this opportunity to congratulate the 
Cebu Association of California, Ini£. on the occasion of the 
forthcoming Fiesta of Santo Nino. May the shining glory of 
the Holy Child lift your hearts wifch/love, peace and joy

We are deeply touched to know that our brother 
Filipinos, particularly Cebuanos, In San Francisco, California

miraculous Image brought to Cebu by the Magellan expedition on 
April 7. 1521. 

The yearly religious rites which Is the object of 
pilgrimages of the faithful from all walks of life, has been given 
more meaning and spiritual significance with its celebration in San 
Francisco, U.S. A. in the sense that this annual veneration has t'ased 
territorial boundaries and spanned great oceans. 

This celebration has also dramatized your affection for 
us here and strengthens further our cherlsed traditions. 

I am therefore privileged to convey. In behalf of the people 
of Cebu, our sincerest congratulations and warmest felicitations to 
the Cebu Association of California, Inc. and Mrs. Sally B. Famarin,

MESSAGE 



It is with pride and joy that I receive the news about 
the celebration of the Santo Nino de Cebu Week in San Fran- 
cisco, California on the third week of January with no less 
than Mayor George Moscone joining hands with the Cebuano 
celebrants. 

I am proud and happy in the thought that my fellow 
Cebuanos in America have not forgotten our beloved Santo 
Nino, the refuge of those in trouble and the hope of those in 
despair. 

My only regret is that I cannot be bodily present in San Francisco during the celebration but I 
assure my fellow Cebuanos in that great American city that I will be present in spirit as they hail the 
Santo Nino and pay Him the tribute He deserves. 

May the observance of the Santo Nino de Cebu Week be a great success and may the "Senor" 
bless us all.

I welcome this opportunity to greet the members of the Cebu Association of San Francisco, 
California on the occasion of their Ninth Annual Fiesta of the Sto. Nino de Cebu. 

This yearly celebration demonstrates the religiosity of Filipinos in keeping alive the values 
of their spiritual heritage wherever they may be. 

I trust that on this occasion they will renew their resolve to further strengthen their unity 
through awareness of their religious kinship. 

I wish all the faithful and the devotees a most joyous and memorable celebration.

SAINT CECILIA'S RECTORY 

2555 SEVENTEENTH AVENUE 

San francibco, California 94116 



January 1977 

To the devotees to Santo Niiio: 

May I congratulate you in the preservering devotion to the Holy Infant, who is the loving expression of 
God's love for ail of us. The devotion to the Holy Child should inspire us to love God more in our lives and 
to love our neighbor as ourselves. 

This is the great commandment: to love God with our whole heart, with our whole soul and with all our 
strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves. 

Although man was created to be God's image and likeness, the likeness is now deformed by sin. But by 
following Jesus, we begin to achieve that likeness again. 

To put it in another way, if someone shows mercy and forgiveness to those around him, then you know 
that in his heart he has drawn close to the mercy and forgiveness of God. If a man is a peacemaker, then you 
know he has experienced God's peace. If he cares for all those he can reach, even laying down his life if 
necessary, then you know that he has known the Lord Who loved him even unto death. 

This is why there are two great commandments instead of one— they cannot be separated. Either you show a 
godly love to your neighbor or you do not love God. 

This is the lesson we should learn during this celebration of the Santo Nino de Cetou. With my priestly bless- 
ing, I am,

GREETINGS 



It is with great pleasure that I greet the officers and 
members of the Cebu Association of California as they celebrate 
the Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu Week in San Francisco. 

Members of the Cebu Association have set an excellent 
example in bringing Americans of Filipino descent to the fore- 
front of responsible citizenship and active participation 
in our society. Calif ornians are enriched by the colorful 
culture and heritage of your people. 

Best wishes for a memorable and enjoyable celebration 
and let me extend my heartfelt congratulations to the young 
lady who is crowned as the Empress of Cebu and her Royal Court. 



Cordially, _

PHILIPPINE CONSULATE GENERAL 




It is with great pleasure that I extend my warmest greetings and best wishes to the Cebu 
Association of California, Inc. on the occasion of its fiesta honoring Cebu's Patron Saint, 
Santo Nino. 

I sincerely commend all of you for your deep interest in propagating in your adopted 
country the accepted religious traditions and customs of our homeland. 

The Santo Nino is perhaps the most ancient miraculous image in our country for which 
every Cebuano, wherever he may be, should be proud of. 

I am confident that this year's celebration will be as successful and meaningful as those 
you have held in previous years. 

May the Holy Child shower upon all of us His benediction and blessings. 



(ROMEO A. ARGUEJ.LES 
Consul General 




CEBU, REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES 
Cardinal's Residence: P. O. Box 52, Cebu City, (6401) Philippines 

To the Cebu Association of California: 

I wish to extend to you my warmest greetings and wishes for success 
in this event wherein you celebrate the Fiesta of Senor Santo Nino. 
It is my ardent desire that once again you will renew your allegiance 
on this occasion to the Christian way of living. We must bear witness 
to our faith by our lives, patterned after the examples of Christ. 

The birth of the Christ child, Santo Nino, ushered in your era of peace 
and love, but the achievement of genuine lasting peace is only con- 
ditioned by our practice of the gospel principles. In this age where 
materialism has made so much influx, we must raise our minds and 
hearts to the noble principles preached by our Lord. These are the 
principles of the love of God, patience, forgiveness, love of peace, 
justice and concern for the unfortunate. 

May I reiterate my cordial wishes for your continued success in the Fiesta del Senor Sto. Nino! 

Personally, I am overjoyed to know of your devotion and love for the Holy Child, even if you are so far 
away from the Philippines. May God bless you!

Cardinal-Archbishop of Cebu 




Santo Nino de Cebu 



Auyustinian Fathers from Manila, Cebu, lloilo, Bacolod, 
Guadalupe and Makati, Rizal, will offer the Concelebrated 
High Mass. His Eminence Julio R. Cardinal Rosales will 
officiate at the Blessing. The Miraculous Image will then be 
enthroned in the Marble Chapel and a novena to Senor 
Santo Nino will follow. 

More than a work of art, the Marble Chapel in which the 
long venerated Santo Nino de Cebu is now enshrined is the 
profound product of a full year of intense labor and sacri- 
fice by Filipino craftsmen, masons, carpenters, and the 
many faithful who gave generously towards its completion. 
It was Rev. Fr. Restituto Suarez, O.S.A., rector of the 
Basilica Minore, who began work on the new chapel in 
August 1975. Started initially with funds of the Augustin- 
ian community of the Philippines, the project was carried 
on with the instant and generous support of the faithful 
who saw in it the further elevation of Cebu's patron in 
their minds and hearts. It was the same Father Suarez who 
in 1958 first took the image from the small niche in which 
it had been housed atop the main altar of the then San 
Ayustin Church. In that niche, the miraculous Image 
weathered World War II and presided over the devotion of 
the people. For untold years, the faithful had to find their 
way to the back of the altar where a door would be opened and the Image exposed to their veneration. Father Suarez prefer- 
ed to bring the Image to a place in the Basilica that would be more instantly accessible to the faithful. That act led eventually 
to the present project-the building of a far more proper and more enduring chapel for the object of the people's unfailing 
devotion. With the completion of the Marble Chapel, the Auyustinian Fathers express their most profound gratitude to the 
benefactors, sponsors, patrons, donors and the numberless faithful who made this dream chapel a reality.

MESSAGE 




I join the officers and members of the Cebu Association of California, Inc. 
in San Francisco in their adoration of Santo Nino de Cebu in connection 
with the annual fiesta celebration from January 14 to 22. The miraculous 
Santo Nino de Cebu occupies a special spot in our hearts, too, because 
we have the good fortune of receiving numerous blessings through the 
kind intercession of the venerated Patron Saint of Cebu. 

I also take great pleasure in conveying my best wishes to Mayor George R. 
Moscone of San Francisco who has proclaimed the third week of January 1977 as the "Fiesta of the Santo 
Nino de Cebu Week" in that city. The meticulous and oftentimes elaborate preparations we make in connection 
with the forthcoming fiesta celebration truly bespeak our fervor as devotees of the Santo Nino de Cebu. I 
express the fond hope that every devotee will find ample time to rededicate himself to the priceless heritage of 
the Faith, and that the forthcoming festivities will be crowned with resounding success. 

City of Cebu, November 17, 1976.

THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU 




The Marble Chapel 



On April 28, 1565, Juan Camus, a sailor in 
Legaspi's fleet, found in a modest house of 
the then village of Cebu the Image of Santo 
Nino which at the time all agreed had been 
brought from Europe. Deeply impressed by 
this finding and aware of its significance, 
Legaspi ordered an official inquiry conducted; 
the document, drawn on May 16 of the same 
year and still extant in the archives of the 
Santo Nino Convent of Cebu, tells us from 
the testimony of eyewitnesses that the Image 
was found inside a small pine box, preserved 
in almost perfect condition; it had on a little 
shirt and a cap; two of its right hand's fingers 
were raised in a gesture of blessing, while the 
left hand held a globe symbolizing the world. 

In solemn procession the Image was carried to 
the provisional Church the Augustinian 
Fathers were using at the time; later, another 
Church was built on the exact location where 
the Image had been found: this is the site of 
the Santo Nino Church where the Augustin- 
ians have cared for the Image and the Filipino 
people have venerated it through the cen- 
turies. 




Santo Nino de Cebu 



As earlier authenticated entry in the Journal of 
Pigaffeta, clerk in the Magellan expedition, 
explains the origin of Santo Nino: on the day 
Queen Juana was baptized by Father Pedro 
Valderrama, chaplain of that expedition, 
Pigafetta himself presented her with the Image. 

During the last World War, a bomb fell inside the 
Church but the Image was found unscathed. It 
was one of the numberless miracles and powers 
attributed to the Holy Image. 

At the instance and initiative of the Rev. Fr. 
Restituto Suarez, O.S.A., author of this Novena, 
the interior of the historic church was renovated 
in 1965 for the observance of the Fourth Cen- 
tenary of the Christianization of the Philippines 
held in Cebu City. It was during this centennial 
celebration that the church, on April 1, 1965, 
was elevated to the rank of Basilica Minore by 
the Sacred Congregation of Rites with all the 
rights and privileges accruing to such title. 



With the full cooperation of the Augustinian 
Community and the Filipino people and sanc- 
tioned by the National Historical Commission of 
the Philippines, Fr. Restituto Suarez has built a 
marble chapel inside the Basilica. Construction 
of the chapel began in August, 1975. This fitting 
shrine of Santo Nino now serves as the main 
center of devotion of Catholic Philippines. Here 
the miraculous Image, Who is the comforter of 
the first missionaries and now Patron of the Phil- 
ippines, is being venerated and honored. 

To preserve and develop national identity, Pres- 
ident Ferdinand E. Marcos has, on August 1, 
1973, declared the Basilica and Convent of 
Santo Nino as a National Shrine together with 
other historical places in the Philippines.

HISTORY OF THE 
CEBU ASSOCIATION OF CALIFORNIA, INC. 



Sprouted from a seed which was once a dream, on 
January 1968, gathered a small group of people who 
hail from the particular province of Cebu, Philippines. 
That seed then began to take roots which is now the 
well-known CEBU ASSOCIATION OF CALIFORNIA, 
INC. 



The Association sponsors the Annual Fiesta of the 
Santo Nino de Cebu Week in San Francisco every Jan- 
uary, each year which has received public recognition 
not only in California but all over the United States 
of America and other parts of the world. 



Preamble 



ILfle, JFUfpfno anD amerirans, and all Oebotees of tbe Santo f5ino De Cebu, residing in tbe 
Clniteo States anD foreign countries, tuho commune toitb us in our iocals anD aspirations, in 
orDer to establish closet ties amongst us, foster effectiveness, meaningful cooperation, pro 
mote tbe common gooD anD general welfare, Do organise ourselaes into a brotberlp association. 

Cbe obfcrt anD purpose of this organisation is to seme Santo Hino for peace anD tbe Dignirp 
of man through ttjr annual tteneration; to honor anD celebrate tbe jriesta of tbe Santo Hino 
De Cebu anD in order to foster tbe spirit of respect anD unOerstanDing among our people 
through this sacteD, cultural anD historical traDition. 



Aims, purposes and goals of the Cebu Association: To 
serve Santo Nino de Cebu for peace and dignity of 
men; thru the tireless efforts of Founder, President 
Emeritus & World Emissary, Commissioner Sally B. 
Femarin and all the officers and members; they have 
set an excellent example in bringing Americans of 
Filipino descent to the forefront of responsible cit- 
izenship and active participation in our Society; the 



devotion to the Santo Nino is a means of inspiring the 
highest values in upholding Sacred Traditions of 
Philippine Culture and heritage; thru the fiesta cele- 
brations the Cebu Association has played an important 
part in fostering the spirit of respect and understand- 
ing which exists between the people of the Philippines 
and the United States. 
Since its founding, different groups attempted to des- 



troy and crush the fiesta celebrations and the Associ- 
ation, but to no avail. The hardships and struggles of 
the officers and members have up-to-this-date made 
the Cebu Association a strong organization proud of 
its ideals and the realization of its dreams, a most 
spectacular and magnificent cultural and traditional 
celebration, the Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu, 
which not only Cebuanos but all Filipinos in the 
United States can be proud of. 

Beginning July 4, 1977, Chapters and affiliate organ- 
izations have been formed by Commissioner Sally B. 
Famarin. commended unanimously by the officers

Emissary of the Association in the promotion of 
Chapters and affiliates of the Cebu Association to

I would like to thank all of you and most of all 
my parents for the hardwork you have put up so 
that the great honor be bestowed upon me to win

Her Majesty Donna I 
Queen of Cebu, 1978-79

To the devotees to the Holy Infant! 

My congratulations to those who have patiently spent time and effort

May this devotion lead you safely home to our Eternal Destiny.

BASILICA DEL SANTO NINO 



THE annual celebration of the Fiesta of Santo Nino 
in San Francisco, California, deserves my support and 
cooperation as Rector of the Basilica del Santo Nino 
in which " the only surviving relic of Magellan's vo- 
yage, the figure of the Christ Child is preserved in 
the Basilica del Santo Nino in the Philippines city 
of Cebu"( National Geographic Vol. 1*9, no. 6, June 1976). 

The numberless faithful who come to Cebu to witness 
and participate in the religious activities and yearly 
procession, and to give thanks to Santo Nino for special 
graces and favors they had received in the past is something 
worth of seeing and watching. The Karble Chapel in which 
the venerated and centuries-old Image of Santo Nino is 
at present encased in gilded and bulletproof glass is 
becoming the center of attraction and pilgrimage of 
hundreds and hundreds of devotees and tourists. Needless 
to say that the devotion to"Senor Santo Nino" de Cebu is 
taking new outgrowth. 

Cognizant of the enthusiasm and devotion of Mrs. Sally 
B. Famarin of u an Francisco, U.S.A., for the Santo Nino 
of Oebu ( the Augustinian fathers of the Basilica del Santo 
Nino in the city of Cebu have unanimously appointed her 
HONORARY HKHMAHA MAYOR for the year 1977. 

Let me avail of this opportunity to congratulate the 
Cebu Association of California, Inc.. on the occasion of the 
forthcoming Fiesta of Santo Kino. May the shining glory of 
the Holy Child lift your hearts w^fch/love, peace and joy.

It is a pleasure for me to greet once again 
the devotees of the Senor Santo Nino — Cebuanos 
as well as the other Filipino ethnic groups — in 
San Francisco, California, as they celebrate the 
feast day of the Holy Child this year. 

Through the years, the Senor Santo Nino has 
been the fountainhead of hope and inspiration for 
the Cebuanos at home and I derive great joy in the 
knowledge that He also fills the same role for Ce- 
buanos in California. 

It is my hope that my fellow Cebuanos in San 
Francisco as they celebrate the feast day of Senor 
Santo Nino, 1 wish to assure them that I will be 
with them in thought and prayer on this special 
day. 

I close this brief message by asking you 
all to join me in hailing the Holy Child 
we do it here in Cebu: "Pit senyor!"

Dear Members : 

It is with a deep sense of pleasure and gratitude 
that I join you in the 10th annual Fiesta of the Patron 
Saint of Cebu. 

In these days of confused moral standards, it is 
heartening to see a great immigrant people, as yourselves, 
returning to the shores of the Western world that faith 
which Magellan brought to you in the Sixteenth Century. 

May the Fiesta of Santo Nino be the catalyst, so 
necessary, in bringing about a renew/rt^of our Christian 
heritage.

MESSAGE 



More Chan four hundred years ago the image 
of the Santo Nino was enthroned in the first Catholic 
church built in Cebu City by the Agustinian priests 
who were with the expedition of Don Miguel Lopez de 
Legaspi . Since then, the Santo Nino de Cebu, attributed 
with miraculous powers, is the center of intense devotion 
by Cebuanos and other devotees and the object of religious 
pilgrimages by Filipinos throughout the country. 

During the celebration of the 400th anniversary 
of Christianity in the Philippines in 1965, the Church of 
the Holy Name of Jesus, where the image of the Santo 
Nino is venerated, was declared BASILICA MINORE by Pope 
Paul VI, a coveted honor which Cebuanos could be proud of. 

In celebrating the centuries-old feast of 
Santo Nino de Cebu here in San Francisco, you have shown 
your intense devotion to the Holy Child and your deep love 
for the rich cultural heritage and religious traditions 
of our homeland. 

Best wishes to you all and may you have a very 
devout and faithful celebration of this year's feastday 
of the Santo Nino.

THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU . . . 

On April 28. 1565. Juan Camus, a sailor in Legaspi's fleet, found in a modest house of 
the then Milage of Cebu the Image of Santo Nino which at the time all agreed had been 
brought from Europe. Deeply impressed by this finding and aware of its significance. Legas- 
pi ordered an official inquiry conducted; the document, drawn on May 16 of the same year 
and still extant in the archives of the Santo Nino Convent of Cebu, tells us from the testi- 
mony of eyewitnesses that the Image was found inside a small pine box. preserved in almost 
perfect condition; it had on a little shirt and a cap; two of its right hand's fingers were raised 
in a gesture of blessing, while the left hand held a globe symbolizing the world. 

In solemn procession the Image uus earned to the provisional Church the Augustinian 
I athers were using at the time; later, another Church was built on the exact location where 
the Image had been found: this is the site of the Santo Nino Church where the Augustinians 
have cared for the Image and the I ilipino people Iiunc venerated it through the centuries. 

As earlier authenticated entrj in the Journal of Pigaffeta. clerk in the Magellan expedi- 
tion, explains the origin of Santo Nino: on the day Queen J nana was baptized by Father 
Pedro Valderama. chaplain of that expedition. Pigafetta himself presented her with the 
Image. 

During the last World War. a bomb fell inside the Church but the Image was found 
unscathed. It was one of the numberless miracles and powers attributed to the Holy Image. 

At the instance and initiative of the Rev. 1 r. Restituto Suarez, O.S.A., author of this Novena. the interior of the historic church was renovated 
in 1965 for the observance of the fourth Centenary of the Christianization of the Philippines held in Cebu City. It was during this centennial cele- 
bration that the church, on April 1. 1965. was elevated to the rank of Basilica Minore by the Sacred Congregation of Rites with all the rights and 
privileges accruing to such title. 

With the full cooperation of the Augustinian Community and the 1 ilipino people and sanctioned by the National Historical Commission of the 
Philippines. I r Restituto Suarez has built a marble chapel inside the Basilica. Construction of the chapel started in August, 1975. This fitting shrine 
of Santo Nino now serves as the center of devotion of Catholic Philippines. Here the miraculous Image of the comforter of the first missionaries and 
now Patron of the Philippines is being honored and venerated. 

To preserve and develop national identity. President I erdinand Ii. Marcos has, since August 1, 1973. declared the Basilica and Convent of Santo 
Nino as National Shrine together with other historical places in the Philippines

cisco every third week of January each year, which has received 
public recognition not only in California but all over the United 
States of America and other parts of the world. St. Patrick's 
church was the center of these celebrations. 



Aims, purposes and goals of the Cebu Association: To serve 
Santo Nino de Cebu for peace and dignity of men Through the 
tireless efforts of the Founder President Emeritus and World 
Emissary. Commissioner Sally B. Famarin and the officers and 
members, they have set an excellent example in bringing Amer- 
icans of Filipino descent to the forefront of responsible citizen 
ship and active participation in our Society. The devotion to the 
Santo Nino is a means of inspiring the highest values in upholding 
Sacred Traditions of Philippine Culture and heritage Through 
the fiesta celebrations the Cebu Association has played an im 
portant part in fostering the spirit of respect and understanding 
which exist between the people of the Philippine Islands and the 
United States 



Since it's founding, different groups attempted to destroy 
and crush the fiesta celebrations and the Association but to 
no avail. The hardships and struggle of the officers and members 
have up to-this-date made the Cebu Association a strong organ- 
ization proud of it's ideals and the realization of its dreams a 
most spectacular and magnificent cultural and traditional celebra 
tion. the Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu which not only 
Cebuanos but all Filipinos can be proud of. 

On January 1. I%9. the Replica of the Miraculous Image 
of the Santo Nino de Cebu arrived in San Francisco California 
U.S.A. The person responsible for the transaction at the time was 
Mrs. Aquilina R. Velez of Cebu City. According to official 
records the Image which came from the Basilica, blessed by the 
Reverend Father Restituto Suarez. O.S.A. Rector of the Basilica. 
The Image was 44 years old then so at this time the Santo Nino 
de Cebu in the United States is 55 years old. In December 1977 
the Image was renovated and the crown was filled with precious 
gems. 





Precious Gems of the Santo Nino de Cebu 

Since the Santo Nino de Cebu arrived in the United States 
in 1969 some of the officers and members of the Cebu Associa- 
tion have donated jewels for Him. As years go by more and 
more jewels were received, most of them donated by Chair 
man of the Board and Past President John II. Atkinson of San 
Francisco. In the year 1978 more precious gems were mounted 
especially on the golden crown donated and designed by John 
H. Atkinson. 

In October 1978 the Santo Nino was featured in the National 
Lapidary Journal. 

In December 31, 1978, He was featured in KEMO-TV, Ama 
pola Show. 




CAMARERAS OF THE SANTO NINO 

"Keeper of the Queen's wardrobe." that is the dictionary 
definition of the Spanish word, camerera and a very royal tra- 
dition of assigning a special group to take care of dressing and 
keeping of the wardrobe of a reigning monarch. It was but 
natural that in Cebu where the Kingship of the Miraculous 
Santo Nino reign, there should be formed a group known as 
Camareras del Santo Nino. In the United States the Camareras 
was formed in 1977. 



THE "HUBO" 
DRESSING AND UNDRESSING RITUALS 

Robing and disrobing of the beloved Santo Nino is carefully 
done by the ladies of the camareras. Camareras of Santo Nino in 
the United States are: Judith Cabuntala. Josefina Perez. Adelaida 
Sadaya, Susie Antionio, Lynda Perez Medel, Angie Paderanga, 
Felicitas Simblante, Crispula Menchavez and Commissioner 
Sally B. Famarin. 

Camareras perform their duties especially during the ritual 
of the "HUBO" when robing and disrobing of the Santo Nino 
takes place. As customary this is done a week after the fiesta 
celebrations. The ritual first started in the United States in the 
year 1977.

"SINOLOG" Thrills San Franciscans 

Once again, in typical Filipino way, the color and richness of our heritage came in display January 21 right in the heart of 
Metropolitan San Francisco; this time in a unique "Sinolog" customary of the Cebuanos in fitting tribute to the merciful SANTO 
NINO. 

St. Patrick's church in Mission Street, where the image of the Holy Child was enshrined, became the hub of devotees and plain 
worshipers to full capacity as early as the 10:00 a.m. mass. Hon S. Lee Vavuris. Superior Court Judge. City and County of San 
Francisco, and Rora Tolentino and Romulo Villamil of the Philippine Consulate, cut the ceremonial ribbon signalling the start of 
the traditional procession. 

With fair weather, the procession went smoothly along the streets of San Francisco bordering St. Patrick's church. Distinct in 
their gala uniform were the members of the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus Color Corp. 

As in all Filipino fiestas, devotees and guests were treated to a hearty luncheon at the church's hall, thanks to the efforts of this 
year's Hermano and Hermana Mr. and Mrs. Potenciano and Crispula Menchavez. 

Hon. George R. Moscone, Mayor. City and County of San Francisco, headed the honored guests at the coronation and ball. 
climaxing the festival, at the California Hall in Polk and Turk streets. The Mayor crowned the queen o( the festival. Hei Majest) 
Queen Donna I, Miss Donna Blanco. 

The coronation and ball highlighted the 1 0th Annual Filipino Fiesta (Jan. 14-21) in San Francisco, sponsored bj the Cebu 
Association of California, Inc.. in honor of Santo Nino 

Credit for the success of the festivities went to countless patrons and supporters cooperating with the following officers: 

Comm. Sally B. Famarin. president: Eddie Sy, executive vice president; Purita Valencia, vice president; Lynda 1 . Perez, 
secretary; Felicitas Simblante, treasurer; Francisco Belara. auditor; Clemen de leon and Dr. Alfredo Segura, PRO; Rose Belara,

During the First Decade of upholding the sacred traditions of miles away you have kept our faith alive through the first decade

thankful for. Many of our ecclesiastical and government officials, tion of California Inc. 
Queens, princesses, community leaders, advertisers, sponsors, 
patrons, donors, news media, officers and members of the Assoc- 
iation, devotees of the Santo Nino, citizens from different seg- 
ments of the community both in the Philippines and the United 
States who have extended their full cooperation and unselfish 
devotion, for without them the great fiesta celebrations would 
not have been made possible. Our special thanks goes to all those 
who have honored us by their participation: The Reverend 
Father Restituto Suarez, O.S.A., Rector of the Basilica Minore, 
Cebu City, Republic of the Philippines, who, with the other 
Agustinian Friars has recognized our fiesta celebrations as an out 
growth from the Basilica. The Reverend Father Suarez is now the 
Spiritual Advisor Emeritus of the Association and serving with 
him is the Assistant Rector, the Reverend Father Manuel Fer- 
nandez; We'd like to thank the Honorable George R. Moscone, 
Mayor of San Francisco for his proclamations, and for the honor 
he has given us by serving on the Honorary Board of Advisors 
of the Cebu Association, to Capt. Ernest Raabe of the San 
Francisco Police Dept. for through his efforts with Commissioner 
Sally B. Famarin the Traditional Processional Parade of the 
Miraculous Image of the Santo Nino de Cebu was made possible 
through the streets of San Francisco for the first time in it's 
history and the Sinolog, dance ritual as customary during the 
fiesta was performed; the Honorable John F. Foran for the 
official adoption of the Resolution from the California State 
Senate; the Honorable Dianne Fienstein, President of the Board 
of Supervisors, City and County of San Francisco with Honor- 
able Ronald Pelosi and other members of the Board of Super-

ficate of honor, the Sixth Army of Presidio of San Francisco

In 1971 they march through a huge crowd attended by City, 
State, Federal officials and foreign dignitaries. The Sheraton 
Palace Hotel was the center of the Coronation and Ball of the 
Queen of the Festival. 

But those of you who have really helped and extended sup- 
port in whatever manner during the First Decade and the pre- 
parations that went with it can rest safely assured that their 
gesture does not pass unnoticed. 

Even if not all have been recognized that you have helped, 
your inner satisfaction that you have helped make a big, 
memorable and traditional gathering a success; far more en- 
compasses all gratitude that the human mind could think and 
the human heart could give. 

Remember the Quotations of the Holy Child: "Ask and 
you shall receive, Seek and you shall find, Knock and it shall 
be opened unto you." 

May the fiesta celebrations fill you with joys unlimited and 
graces in abundance!!!

MESSAGE 



One of the major concerns of the New 
Society in the Philippines is the preservation of 
the Filipino heritage- Filipino values and 
traditions- not only among Filipinos residing in 
the homeland but among those who live in other 
countries as well. 

In a state where the Filipino population 
makes up a sizable percentage, such as California, 
this effort becomes doubly important and assumes 
added significance. 

It is with considerable gratification 
therefore that I note the religious involvement of 
the Cebu Association of California in the spiritual 
life of Filipinos in San Francisco. 

On behalf of the Filipino people, allow me 
to extend to our countrymen across the seas warmest 
felicitations on the feast day of Santo Nino de 
Cebu. 

May the blessed Christ Child shower rich 
blessings upon you on this auspicious year of 1979, 
and in the many years ahead.

Dear Jally: 



Thank you for your letter of invitation to your forthcoming Fiesta 
celebration. I regret, however, to Inform you that, much as I would like 
to join you in one of the Novena nights, I'm afraid I can't make it on a 
Tuesday (which Is the only vacant day left for me, as mentioned in your 
letter) . Tuesday is my duty-day in the Parish. I can be free only on a Wed- 

I may, however, possibly be able to concelebrate on the very day of 
the Festival (the 20th), depending on how soon my Pastor can recuperate 
from the hospital. You see, my Pastor is scheduled to undergo a knee sur- 
gery sometime this week, v/hich leaves only me to take care of the Parish, 
for a month or so. Hence, I'd be tied up to my Parish obligations In the 
next couple of weeks. 

I i 





I know how hard it mi 


ist be for you and your Assoclatior 


to have lost 


Mayor 


Moscone who has been 


rery supportive of your worthy caus 


e. We lost a 


good 


man. 







But, even as we mourn hla passing and pray for him, let not his un- 
timely death diminish in any way your fervor and your untiring effort to 
promote devotion to our dear Santo Nino. In fact, it should even encour- 
age you more to continue the work of spreading devotion to Santo Nino which 
the late Mayor so generously supported. 



Regards and God bless you.

On November 21, 1978, the Filipino-

dered a birthday party in honor of Mayor

Flowers, Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. 
The Filipino Commissioners of San Francis- 
co, Mr. Zoilo Inacay and other Filipino 
leaders in the Bay Area united in forming 
this celebration. 

The top highlight of the evening was 
when Commissioner Sally B. Famarin of San

sion presented Mayor Moscone with a Pro- 
clamation and Resolution voted unanimously 
by Governor Gullas of Cebu province, with 
a proclamation from City Mayor Eulogio 
Borres of the City, officially declaring Mayor 
Moscone an adopted SON of Cebu province. 
When the Mayor received the proclamation, 
Commissioner Famarin solemnly proclaimed: 
"Mayor Moscone, you are now an adopted 
SON of Cebu, and since you are an adopted 
Cebuano, then, that makes you an adopted 
Filipino." The Mayor was very happy that 
evening. Before the evening's presentation, 
his secretary had stated to Famarin that the 
Mayor felt the presentation was a very im- 
portant event in his life. 

In her speech. Commissioner Famarin 
stressed, "As Mayor of San Francisco, Mayor 
Moscone has paved the way for more involve- 
ment of Filipinos in City government. He 
has done so much to bring Filipinos to the 
forefront in their active participation in 
government issues in different branches of 
government.

decree as an adopted Son of Cebu. Philippines which was presented 
to him November 21, 1978 during his birthday at the Golden Gate 
Park in San Francisco. On November 27. 1978. after Commissioner 
Famarin presented the proclamation, he was assassinated. But he will 
live in the hearts of the Filipinos especially the Cebuanos. 

Sally, I want you to know that our hearts are with you in your sorrow and that as Empress of Cebu, I will be

OFFICE OF THE MAYOR

(greeting* 




j # 



As Mayor, it is a pleasure to extend greetings and congratulations 
from the people of the City and County of San Francisco to the 
people of Mandaue City of the Republic of the Philippines on the 
occasion of their Annual City Fiesta to be held on May 8, 1978. 

I am sure Mandaue City is very proud of the Mandauehanons who now 
reside in their adopted land, the United States of America, and who 
are honoring their Homeland, the Republic of the Philippines, as 
evidenced by the extraordinary and sterling civic contributions 
of Commissioner Sally Basiga Famarin which have enriched and 
strengthened the Filipino-American Community of our City. She 
has coordinated a multitude of projects that have redounded bene- 
fits not only to the Filipino Community but to all the citizens 
of our City. Having fostered the Filipino Fiesta of the Santo Nino 
de Cebu since 1968, our City is joining Commissioner Famarin in 
celebrating the First Decade of this event, which has helped to 
cement the spirit of respect and understanding which exists between 
our people. 

Though circumstances do not permit my being with you, I am proud 
to extend my congratulations to Honorable Demetrio M. Cortes, Mayor 
of Mandaue City, for his years of dedicated service. My heartiest 
best wishes are extended also to those young ladies who will be 
ilpd Queens during this year's Festival. 

As an Honorary Cebuano, I am honored to be a part of your eel cbr.it inn. 
and though I am not personally present, I want you to know that my 
thoughts and prayers are with you.

It is a pleasure for me to extend best wishes for a very Happy Birth- 
day to Commissioner Sally Basiga Famarin as her family and many 
devoted friends join in a birthday celebration on November 1 1 . 1978. 
at the Jack Tar Hotel. 

During her many years as a San Franciscan. Sally Famarin has made 
innumerable contributions to civic betterment, both in the Filipino- 
American Community and the City as a whole. Her work on many 
agency boards and in civic organizations has been truly outstanding. 
and has redounded incalculable benefits in improving the quality o\' 
life we enjoy in San Francisco. That she combines community service 
with a successful business career is a tribute to her talent and ability, 
as well as a testament to her public-spirited dedication to civic progress. 

As Mayor of San Francisco. I am happy to join in this Birthday 
Tribute to your charming guest of honor. Happy Birthday. Sally, and 
best wishes for continued good health, happiness and success in all 
things.

until 1975. Despite his work as supervisor of

FOUNDED * 19il AD 



/ 






Cebu has earned that reference as the "Cradle of Christianity in the Far East" and devotion to the Santo 
NiiTo has always been a strong characteristic of the Cebuanos as well as the Filipinos in general. To preserve 
national identity. President Ferdinand E. Marcos of the Philippines has, since August 1, 1973. declared the 
Basilica and convent of the Santo Nino in Cebu City, Republic of the Philippines, the national shrine of the 
Filipinos. 

In June of 1979, Commissioner Sally B. Famarin of San Francisco, California, authored and endorsed St. 
Joseph's Church, La Basilica del Santo Nino de Cebu on the National Register of Cultural and Historical 
Places and the National Shrine of Filipinos in the United States of America, a national landmark. 




"Santo Nino De Cebu Marble Altar Ground-Breaking Ceremony" by Rev Fr. James A. McGee. Pastor of St. Joseph's Parish. 
Fr. Arturo Albano of St. Cecelia's Parish and Commissioner Sally B. Famarin, Landmarks Preservation, san Francisco City 
Planning Dept. with the Officers and Members of the Santo Nino De Cebu Association attended by devotees and leaders from 
various organizations in the Bay Area, celebrated November 1 1 . 1979. 

Commissioner Sally B. Famarin releases her personal donation of $8,000.00 for the construction of the marble altar which 
benefits the Filipino-American Community as well as all kinds of people, not only in San Francisco, but throughout the nation. 
Initial donation was made by Ms. Connie Francisco and Dr. Albert Shumate, Pres. Emeritus, California Historical Society. 



Message of His Holiness 
Pope John Paul II 




His First World Day of Peace for the Statesmen 

He urges everybody to make generous gestures of peace, 
even audacious ones, to break free from vicious circles and 
from the deadweight of passions inherited from history. 

'To Reach Peace — Teach Peace. " 

To everyone. Christians, believers, men or women of 
goodwill, I say: "Do not be afraid to take a chance on peace. 
to teach peace. Peace will be the last Word of history."

MESSAGE FROM THE 
EXECUTIVE GENERAL CHAIRPERSON 

Welcome to our 12th Annual Fiesta of the Santo Nino de 
Cebu Week in San Francisco, January 1 1-20, 1980. The Fiesta 
of Santo Nino imparts to every devotee, a renewed sense of the 
value of the traditional traits of piety, friendship, cooperation 
and hospitality. 

On behalf of the Officers and Members of the Cebu Associa- 
tion of California Inc. I wish to extend my profused and pro- 
found gratitude and sincere appreciation to all the Members of 
the different organizations and devotees who have joined us 
during the celebration and the nine consecutive nine-day 
Novena for their untiring efforts and spiritual devotion; to all who have participated in the tradi- 
tional procession for their unselfish cooperation and strong devotion: to all the News Media for 
their publicity and generosity; to our sponsors, donors and friends in business for making it possible 
for the printing of our souvenir program; to the parents, friends and supporters of Her Majesty 
Queen Vickie I and Her Majesty the Empress of Cebu for their generosity, cooperation, dedication, 
understanding they have given to the noble cause of the campaign; to those who have donated to 
the Charity Sweepstakes by buying raffle tickets; and to all those who have sent their donations for 
the marble altar, for their generosity, love and devlotion to the Infant Jesus; to each and every one 
of you who in any way helped make this Fiesta possible; to all of you who have donated the re- 
freshments each night of the Novena and the Banquet, for your kind generosity and cooperation. 
Thank you! May God continue to bless us all! Pit Senor Santo Nino!

DEDICATED TO SERVE STO. NINO 
FOR PEACE AND THE DIGNITY OF MAN 



Sprouted from a seed which was once a dream, on January 1968, gathered a small group of people who hail from the particular province 
of Cebu, Philippines. That seed then began to take roots which is now the well-known CEBU ASSOCIATION OF CALIFORNIA, INC. 
The Founders and original sponsors of the Filipino Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu in the United States of America. 




To the South of Luzon is a cluster of islands, the most densely populated of which is Cebu. 
Cebu City; the oldest city in the country, is its capital. 

In the Plaza of Cebu City stands a large hollow cross protecting an old inner cross which 

was planted by Magellan on Philippine soil when he and his soldiers celebrated their 

first Mass in the islands in 1521. Nearby is the beautiful church of San Agustin 

(now the Basilica Minore) where rests the most ancient image of the country, 

the Santo Nino (Holy Child), around which revolves many stories handed 

down from generation to generation. One believes that image to have 

been presented by Magellan to the wife of a Cebu chieftain u 

conversion to Christianity, and recovered 40 years later after 

arrival of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi who got the conversion at 

colonization of the islands underway. Another story, believe 

to be authentic, is related by an Agustinian friar. Upon the 

arrival of Legaspi in Cebu, the natives, so the story goes, 

burned their houses and fled to the mountains in fea 

A soldier, by the name of Juan Camus, noticed while 

patrolling the area, that one nipa hut was spared 

by the flames which had enveloped the whole place 

He entered the house and on the floor saw a 

beautiful wooden box bound with a strong 

rope. Inside the box was still another box 

in which the Holy Child was laid. The 

tiny image has been venerated for 



MACTAN 



Half an hour by motor boat 

from Cebu City is the island of 

Mactan where stands a monument 

to Magellan on the spot where the

(TO THE CITY AND THE world) 



"TO REACH PEACE - TEACH. PEACE." 



YOU ARE THE PRINCE OF PEACE, HE SAID, ADDRESSING HIMSELF

DESIRED IN THE MODERN WORLD AND AT THE SAME TIME HOW MUCH IT IS

PURSUIT OF UNITY 



"The pursuit of unity must penetrate all levels of the life 
of the church," Pope John Paul II has declared. 

"A privileged instrument for participation in pursuit of the 
unity of all Christians is prayer. Jesus Christ Himself left us 
His desire for unity through a prayer to the Father - 

THAT THEY ALL BE ONE, EVEN AS THOU, 
FATHER, ART IN ME AND I AM IN THEE, 
SO THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE THAT 
THOU HAST SENT ME (JOHN 17:21). 

Prayer gives life, consistency, spirit and finality to the 
ecumenical movement .... Prayer , furthermore, reminds us that unity, 
ultimately, is a gift of God, a gift for which we must ask, a gift 
for which we must prepare in order that it may be granted to us."

Parish Council of St. Joseph's Church 
1415 Howard Street 
San Francisco, CA 94103 

Dear Mrs . Famarin: 



While my schedule does not permit me to join you for the Fiesta 
in honor of Santo Nino de Cebu, I do wish to thank you for your 
courtesy in extending this invitation and to assure you that I 
will be with you in prayer and spirit on January 18th. 

In 1521 the great explorer, Ferdinand Magellan, planted the cross 
in the city of Cebu. Since that time the Christian faith has 
grown and flourished in the Philippine Islands and this faith has 
been brought by you to the United States. The religious fervor 
of the Filipino people and their rich cultural heritage is a 
source of blessing to the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Your de- 
voted priests and religious give testimony to the efficacy of 
that cross planted long ago in the city of Cebu. 

With gratitude for the many rich gifts the Filipino Community has 
brought to the Church in San Francisco and with prayers that the 
Christ Child will continue to bless you and your people as you 
strive to serve Him, I am 

Devotedly yours in Christ,

MESSAGE 



It heartens me to know that in keeping with the 
cultural and religious traditions of our country, the Cebuanos 
in California continue to celebrate the feast of the Sto.Nino, 
Patron Saint of Cebu. 

On this special occasion, it is important to bear in 
mind that it is a time not only for merriment but also for 
spiritual reflection and introspection. 

Keep in mind, too, that this week- long celebration 
is an opportunity for the members of the Cebu Association of 
California, Inc. to unit in re-orienting policies and commitments 
of this association towards Filipino-American progress and 
prosperitiy. 

Definitely, the success of this association, in all 
its proposed goals, hinges on the participation and involvement 
of its members. Thus, this affair is but a direct manifestation 
of your interest and efforts in giving credence to your dedication 
to the propagation of the richness of Filipino social and 
cultural heritage. 

It pleases me to have this opportunity to congratulate 
you once again for the fruitful achievements rendered to your 
fellowmen. Let me extend my commendations, too, to those 
involved in this endeavor. It is my fervent hope that you will 
keep up the good work. 






ROMEO A. AR<

THE ROYAL COURT \k 

QUEEN'S MESSAGE 



It is a great fulfillment and a 
pleasure to be the reigning queen of the 
Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu Week of 1981. 

In taking part of this fiesta I found 
the meaning of my cultural background, which I 
didn't know about. In my primer years, I went 
to school in San Francisco. Being around 
different cultures, I know the meaning of what 
the United States is composed of. In my se- 
condary school, I became more aware of dif- 
ferent cultures grouping among themselves. 

I hope one day the Filipino communities 
and organizations will unite and work as one, 
to make our people as well as other cultures 
closer together. 

I deeply give my thanks to my parents for supporting and sharing their 
love for me. I also appreciate and I am very glad to know that my 
relatives and friends are there when I needed them. 

May God Bless you all and again Thanks!

<g>rceting;$ 

We welcome the Filipino populace and 
all devotees of the Santo Nino de Cebu not 
onl> from San Francisco but from different 
parts of the nation who have devoted their 
time, monev and efforts to come to San 
Francisco and be with us on this beautiful 
celebration of the Filipinos' Patron Saint. 

The concelebrated mass, the traditional 
processional parade of the Miraculous 
Image of the Santo Nino de Cebu along the 
streets of San Francisco and the Traditional 
Carroza, the first of its kind in the United 
States have given more meaning to the 
fiesta celebration and the cultural heritage 
of (he Filipino people. 

All Filipinos should be very proud of 
the Chapella del Santo Nino de Cebu, St. 
Joseph's church, for the enthronization of 
your Patron Saint, the Miraculous Santo 
Nino and the shrine you build to show 
your love for the Holy Child which will 
bring more pride including all the 
parishioners of St. Joseph's parish. 

I would like to take this opportunity to 
thank all our parishioners and devotees of 
the Santo Nino de Cebu, the officers and 
members of the Cebu Association of 
California, Inc., and to Sally B. Famarin 
for your strong devotion, love and adora- 
tion of the Santo Nino de Cebu. The 
Marble Chapel is a lasting memory of all 
your sacrifices, love and understanding. 
May it continue to flourish! 

The Landmarks Preservation of St. 
Joseph's church at the time of the 
enthronization and building of the Santo 
Nino de Cebu Shrine in the church have 
made it more significant and meaningful 
not only to the Filipino people but all our 
people. This is now part of San Francisco 
history and will be carried down from 
generation to generation. 

I am very happy indeed to join with you 
in this most memorable occasion.

DID YOU KNOW 



Father James A. McCee blessed the Santo

1 979, the first Sunday after Easter.

after the fire and earthquake in San Francisco 
the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was celebrated 
at St. Joseph's parish? 

That the 400 year old relic, Santo Nino de 
Cebu at the Basilica Minore in Cebu City,

That in November 1976, the inauguration 
of the Santo Nino Marble Chapel at the Basilica

breaking ceremony of the Marble Chapel 
construction in the United States was held at 
San Francisco's St. Joseph's church with 
hundreds of devotees in attendance? 

That the beautiful church of St. Joseph was 
dedicated November 22, 1914, is the third 
church built in this parish? The second church 
built immediately after the 1906 fire and 
earthquake is the present parish hall. 

That the present church is one of the first 
all-steel building ever built in this city? 

That many of the outstanding leaders of 
this city are graduates of St. Joseph's school? 

That in 1871 the first Holy Names Sisters 
ever to teach in San Francisco came here to 
begin their work amidst the sand-dunes of 
what was South of Market? 

That Edward F. Lucett, a resident of this 
parish since 1875, was sexton of this church 
till his death in 1 95 1 ? 

That the Young Men's Institute was 
founded in this parish in March 4, 1883? The 
Young Men of the parish would gather beneath 
the lamp post (now preserved in the garden) at 
the corner of Tenth and Howard Streets. Out 
of these meetings came the birth of a Catholic 
coastwise organization, the foremost Society of 
Catholic men in the West with branches in 
many of the eastern states. 

That the first president of the Young 
Men's institute was James Smith who fought 



in Manila against Spain in 1898, stayed out 
there to become very popular among Filipinos, 
become Sec. of Instruction, Governor General

That the official document of the

celebration accomplished in San Francisco and 
the Bay Area that represents the Filipino 
segment of the community. 

That October 4th is the day of St. Francis 
de Assissi of our beautiful City of San 
Francisco? 

That the story goes that the right foot of 
the Santo Nino de Cebu in the Philippines were 
cut off and that the toes of the right foot of the 
Santo Nino de Cebu in the United States were 
cut off on its own, months after His arrival in 
San Francisco? Boots have been made by John

World Emissary, Commissioner Sally Basiga Famarin, the "MARBLE CHAPEL" shrine of the 
Miraculous Santo Nino de Cebu, the Filipinos' Patron Saint, will be viewable at San Francisco's 
Saint Joseph's Church, LA CHAPELLA DEL SANTO NINO DE CEBU, now the largest Filipino

BY JOHN H. ATKINSON- CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS 

At a time in history when so many different ideologies are dividing so many peoples of the 
world, it is most gratifiying to be a part oi and to be able to witness the ever growing unity of our 
members and the whole Filipino community in the Ba) Ana. 

This one full day of celebration, beginning with the High Mass at St. Joseph's Church, 
followed by a gourmet luncheon of Filipino delicacies, then, on to the pageantry and procession 
of the Santo Nino,gives the Filipino American a brief glimpse back into their homeland and I 
hope leaves them with many pleasant memories! 

To the youth of our community who have never seen the beautiful land then' parents came 
from, this is a challenge to them as future leaders oi ourcommunitj to cam on their rich heritage 
and to never let it die, but in the name ol San( i Nino go forward with head held high and be

MESSAGE 




Filial adherance to the revered Christian and national tradition is the indelible 
mark that characterized the Filipino from the peoples of the world. 

His faith in the Almighty, his trust in his fellQwmen and his belief that 
concerted efforts is a formidable social and economic developmental force have 
strengthened his moral fiber, tempered his quest for total personal development 
and set him in motion with the challenges of the times and in the tide humanity 
wherever he may be. 

With this thought, I take pride in extending my sincerest gratitude and warmest 
felicitation to the Cebuanos and Countrymen in the State of California, USA, 
particularly to the Santo Nino De Cebu Association of California on the occasion of 
the blessing of the marble chapel of the Holy Image on October 4, 1980.

MESSAGE 




I am happy to convey my greetings to all Santo Nino de Cebu devotees in San 
Francisco, California, on the occasion of the blessing of the marble chapel of the 
Holy Child as well as the holding of the traditional carroza on October 4, 1980. 

It is good to know that even outside of home our brother and sister Cebuanos, 
and other Filipino ethnic groups for that matter, have not forgotten to honor the 
Santo Nino de Cebu, the fountainhead of many good things that have come to 
Cebu and its people. 

I hail the people who undertook the construction of the marble chapel and I join 
them in prayer on the occasion of its blessing. 

May the Santo Nino de Cebu continue to reign supreme in your heart!

Santo .Vi/io de Cebu 



PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE 




by 
SALLY BASIGA FAMARIN 



On behalf of the Cebu Association of California, Incorporated, aka Santo Nino de Cebu 
Association, it is with great honor and pride to greet all devotees of the Santo Nino de Cebu who came 
to honor this magnificent and beautiful cultural and historical tradition of our people and for all future 
generations. 

As the Rector of the Basilica Minore of Cebu City, Republic of the Philippines, Rev. Fr. Restituto 
Suarez said in his message in 1978, "Ten years of service, dedication, devotion coupled with untiring 
efforts and sacrifices in fostering the friendly relations between Filipinos and Americans in California, 
U.S.A., deserve the appreciation and applause of all law-abiding citizens." 

It is almost thirteen years now and the hardships and struggle, all of those sacrifices we have overcome, has made the Cebu 
Association great and strong, proud of its ideals, aims and goals which we have finally accomplished. Our dreams has come to 
reality. We have our center of devotions the National shrine of the Filipinos in the United States. The Santo Nino de Cebu is now a 
great part of the history of the Filipino people in America. The building of the "Marble Chapel" shrine of Santo Nino, the sign La 
Chapella del Santo Nino de Cebu, the Traditional Carroza, the special cultural, special historical and architectural landmark and 
aesthetic interest and value with its triple inauguration rites in San Francisco, California has brought national distinction to Filipino 
Americans and represents the Filipino segment of the community in the United States. This has also paved the way not only to the 
Filipinos' religious activities but in their active participation in our society and in civic, social, cultural and historical arena. The 
enthronement of the Santo Nino de Cebu and all the accomplishments that went with it is the pride of all Filipino people regardless 
of where they may be. 

IN RECOGNITION AND GRATITUDE 

To all those people, ecclesiastical and government officials, different leaders from various organizations, officers and members 
of the Cebu Association of California, Inc. all the news media, who gave of themselves in various ways in all our projects and 
accomplishments . . . and many, many others, who in their humble ways put in their shares though how big or small it may be . . . 
even those who would rather be unnamed ... or those whose names escapes our memory . . . our greatest joy was in seeing what we 
were able to do together! 

"THY WILL BE DONE!" 

This is the theme of Christ's agony which piously appealed. Nothing could be more significant that almost thirteen years of toil 
and struggle for the enthronization of the Santo Nino de Cebu in the United States, the signs that went up with it, the Marble 
Chapel, the special cultural, special historical landmark and aesthetic interest and value, the Traditional Carroza, and most of all 
the Traditional Processional Parade along the streets of San Francisco in honor of the Miraculous Santo Nino de Cebu which has 
brought national distinction to Filipino Americans .... all in holy obeisance to the will of thy Father ... a prayer and a 
commitment ... it is of great moment when one remembers that almost thirteen years ago when we began ... to bring to our 
adopted land, the United States of America ... . the cultural, historical and most sacred of the Filipino traits and tradition ... to 
introduce to this adopted country of ours the cultural and historical aspects of our land of birth .. . that we may be recognized in all 
branches of government all over the nation ... the time has come ... we feel we have accomplished what we have strived for . . . 
there is a reason to celebrate then, and let it be set in record, let it be a part of the history of the Filipino people in the United 
States . . . now we have to thank God for everything! ! ! 



THANK YOU ALL AND MAY SANTO NINO BLESS YOU!!!!

"Culture is the life of the 
spirit. It is to express in 
a single word the national 
identity that constitutes 
the soul of these people, 
that survives despite 
adverse conditions, traits, 
of every kind the catalysms 
of history or nature. It is 
the foundamental and 
unifying expression of 
their existence."

To the South of Luzon is a cluster of islands, the most densely populated of which is Cebu. 
Cebu Citv . the oldest cit> in the country , is its capital. 

In the Plaza of Cebu City stands a large hollo* cross protecting an old inner cross which 
was planted bv Magellan on Philippine soil when he and his soldiers celebrated their 
fini Mass in the islands in 1521 Nearbv is the beautiful church of San Agustin 

e Basilica Minore) where rests the most ancient image of the country 
the Santu Nino [Holy Child), around which revolves many stories handed 
down from generation to generation One believes that image to have 
been presented bv Magellan to the wife of a Cebu chieftain upon her 
conversion to Christianity, and recovered 40 years later after the 
arrival of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi who got the conversion and 
cuiom/aiion of the islands underway. Another story, believed 
to be authentic, is related by an Agustinian friar. Upon the 
arrival of Legaspi in Cebu, the natives, so the story goes 
burned their houses and fled to the mountains in fear. 
A soldier, bv the name of Juan Camus, noticed while 
patrolling the area, that one nipa hut was spared 
by the flames which had enveloped the whole place 
He entered the house and on the floor saw a 
beautiful wooden box bound with a strong 
rope Inside the box was still another box 
in which the Holy Child was laid. The //. 

tinv image has been venerated for 
centuries as a miraculous symbol 
ot ( hrisiunitv 



Half an hour by motor boat 

from Cebu City is the island of 

Mactan where stands a monument 

to Magellan on the spot where the 

Portuguese navigator met his death 

at the hands of the native chief, Lapulapu. 



Cebu is 45 minutes from Manila by plane and 22 hours by boat.

Santo Nino de Cebu, a Religious Artifact 



2207-28th. Avenue, San Francisco, California, 94116 



Historical Significance: The only surviving reiic of Magellan's voyage (National Geog. 
1976 June issue) is part of history of the Filipino people. Brought and introduced to the 
U.S. in Jan. 1968 thru the leadership of Sally Basiga Famarin, the veneration and fiesta 
of the Santo Nino de Cebu has played an important part in fostering the spirit of respect 
and understanding which exist between the Philippine Islands and the U.S. and provides 
all Californians to learn more about the outstanding contributions to the State & Nation 
made by our citizens of Filipino descent. Introduces the highest values in upholding 
sacred traditions of Philippine culture & heritage and has received public recognition 
all over the States by all kinds of people. To develop national identity, President of the 
Philippines declared image of the Santo Nino de Cebu the National Shrine, it is just fitt- 
ing to be the National Shrine of the Filipinos in the United States of America.

Santo Nino 



( "V^ Devotional practices in the Church have 
' O changed greatly across the renturies. The

of the sixteenth century, and usua"

■)& 






of the sixteenth century, and usually it 

emphasized the idea of V _ 

Spairh the devotion spread to the rest 

of Europe and later on to other parts 

^\i* of the world. Famous among the statues 

Z <^ of Christ as a child and king are the 

l^^i Infant of Prague and the Sto. Nino de 

Cebu. although the latter antedates the 

Infant of Prague by at least thirty-three 

years. 

The devotion to the Holy Child must 
hive been already popular in Belgium 
by the beginning of the 16th century, 
since the image of (he Sto. Nino de 
Cebu seems to have come from Flanders, 
if we are to believe the description and 
opinion of the eyewitnesses at the time 
a of its finding. 
*? >$ The finding of the image of the Sto. 
/ «Lv . Nino de Cebu is not a pious tale, as 
in most similar instances, but a historical 
* r ■, fact amply documented and closely linked 
i f$ to the Christianization of (he islands. 



After the failure of various Spanish 
expeditions to the islands under Loaysa 
(1 525). Saavedra (1527) and Villalobos 
(1542). several years passed before a 
new expedition could be fitted out. The 
new venture was under the joint leader- 
ship of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and 
Fray Andres de Urdancta. an Augustinian 
priest who had been Captain in the 
ill-fated expedition of Loaysa. He had 
a wide knowledge of seafaring and was 
accompanied by another four Augustinian 
priests, ready to start (he conversion of 
the natives to the Christian religion. 

Legazpi* fleet left Mexico on 21 Nov- 
ember 1564. reaching the archipelago on 
13 February 1565. Aflcr several slops 
al different islands, they sailed for Cebu 
where they arrived on April 27 of (he 
same year. Through his interpreter, \e 
gazpi made il known to (he natives who 
had come lo the shore (hat he wanted

and saying tha( chieftain Tupas would

Aflcr two hours, another messenger 
from Tupas came announcing that he 
would arrive that evening. Meanwhile 
the natives had retreated lo the hills 
with all their belongings. But Tupas 
never appeared. 

The following day Legazpi sent Malco 
del Saz to shore to tell the natives 
that they had to make peace wi'hin 
two hours or face the consequences. The 
delaying tactics of the natives gave th.-m

Zr-fT^i and had its right hand raised with two 
fingers in a gesture of blessings, and 
in its left it held a gilded globe on 
which the cross was missing. After mark- 
p f.^ef'jr' ing the house with a bamboo cioss, 
S v /» Camus ran with his treasure and brought 
it to Legazpi and the priests. 

After Legazpi stepped ashore, one of 
his first acts was to reserve the grounds 
where the statuette was found as ihe 
future site of the monastery and church 
to be erected by the Augustinians. 

After a temporary church had been 
built, the statuette was brought in pro- 
^ cession from the hut to its new home 
^^'~ and was placed on the main altar. There 
i /*% was also a unanimous decision to com- 
f/ (^ memoralc yearly the finding of the image 
I X ->3p* on 28 April. Finally, a confraternity 
\ i 7*> was organized with the majority of the 
V^>? expeditionary corps becoming members,

W/r^ ' n ,ne ^ n " rcn °f San Agustin in Mexico,

mt, :' ( title of the Holy Name of |csus and 
f,' V*t5 I the city of Cebu was given the name 
, fl* , (of City of the Holy Name of Jesus. 



Two native chiefs, accompanied by 
thirty of their men, came to the Spanish 
Camp, and were asked about the origin 
of the statue, but they only could answer 
that it belonged to a certain slave. l.e- 
gazpi conducted a thorough investigation 
of the finding of the statuette so that 
there would be an official document 
about the origin of the feast. Probably 
the natives had forgotten in forty years, 
the origin of the statue, but Fr Urdaneta 
himself says in his account to the King 
that "the natives must have kept the 
statue since the time they had killed 
some of Magellan's soldiers here". 

A church" was built in honour of the 
image of the Holy Child and dedicated 
to the Holy Name of Jesus. It was 
the first church in the country and most 
probably was made of nipa and bamboo. 
The Spaniards started referring to both 
the statue and Church as Sto. Nino (Holy 
Child). The church fell prey to, fire 
and later on was replaced by another 
made of timber, which also burned down 
on 8 May 1628. The devotion to the 
Sto. Nino seems to have somehow de- 
clined with the transfer of the government 
and of the motherhouse of the August- 
inians to Manila. 

The present building of church and 
monastery was started about 1730 and 
the Sto. Nino was finally enthroned on 
16 January 1740. 



The festivities of the Fourth Centennial y?5j

GREETINGS TO THE CHURCH AND PHILIPPINE NATION 
HIS HOLINESS POPE JOHN PAUL 11 



SL 



Dear People of the Philippines 
In my desire to know personally the great peoples of Asia, I wanted my 
first papal visit to be to the Philippines. The Philippine Nation is 
deserving of particular honour since, from the beginning of its chris- 
tianization. from the moment that Magellan planted the Cross in Cebu 
four hundred and sixty years ago, on April 15,1521, all through the 
centuries, its people have remained true to the Christian Faith. In an 
achievement that remains unparalleled in history, the message of Christ 
took roots in the hearts of the people within a brief span of time.and 
the church was thus strongly implanted in this nation of seven thousand 
islands and numerous tribal and ethnic communities. The rich geographi- 
cal and human diversity , and various cultural traditions, and the peoples 
joy and sharing, together with the fruits of the missionary efforts have 
successfully blended and have shaped, through periods which were some- 
times not devoid of shadows and weaknesses, a clear national identity 
that is unmistakably Filipino and truly Christian. 

Due homage must be paid to this achievement of the Filipino people.but 
what you are also creates an obligation and it confers upon the nation 

a^ni^^r 10 "- " ^^^ thSt haS k6pt the Catholic ft*" strong 
Asia hat s r ° UBhthe ViCiSSUUdeS ° f <*■ hist -V. the sole nation in 
Asxa that is approximately ninety per cent Christian .assumes bv this 
fact the obligation not only to preserve its Christian heritage but to 
bear witness to the values of its Christian culture before the whole 
world. Although small in size of land and populatlon compared tQ ^ 
of its neighbors, the Philippine nation has un doubtedly a special role 
m the concert of nations, in order to consolidate peace and interna- 
tional understanding, and more particularly in maintaining st.bilit, >n 
South East Asia, where it has a vital task. The Filipino people .il] 
always carry out this task from their noble heritage not 

only of Christian faith but also of the rich human and cultural values 
that are their own.

HIS HOLINESS, POPE JOHN PAUL 11 IN CEBU, PHILIPPINES , LITURGY OF THE WORD 



Finding myself in this important city known as the cradle of Christianity 1 
in the Philippines, I want to express my deep joy and profound thanks- 
giving to the Lord of history. The thought that for 450 years the light 
of the Gospel has shown with undimmed brightness in this land and on its 
people is cause for great rejoicing. Four and a half centuries of fruit- 
ful interaction between the local culture and the Christian message have 
resulted in this harmonious blending called "Filipino Christian culture." 
God's providence in the Philippines has truly been wonderful. The Chris- 
tianization that took place in the sixteenth century was not something 
merely accidental. Divine grace was at work when the people of this 
region had their first contact with the image of the Santo Nino. It is 
an important historical fact, rich in religious meaning, that on 1 January 
1571 the village kingdom of Sugbu was renamed "Villa del Santo Kino ", 
and thus the first city of the Philippines was placed under the patn 
of the Child Jesus. 

In a particular way the church thanks God that the tiny Christian commu- 
nity of Sugbu, under the patronage of the Infant Jesus.has now bei 
flourishing archdiocese of two million people , almost all of who: 
Catholics- It can truly be said that growth in faith and Christian 
^ living has been until now a constant feature of the church in Cebu as 
well as the whole Philippines. The gloriou Ivee hope Tot the 
future.

HISTORY OF THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU 
CEEU ASSOCIATION OF CALIFORN IA, UN ITED STATES OF AMERICA 



"outed from a seed which was once a dream, in January 1968, 
y;. r% i a small group of people v?ho hail from the particular province 
Oi Cebu, Republic of the Philippines. That seed then begun to take 
roots which is now the well-known Cebu Association of California , Ir.c . , 
also known as Santo Nino de Cebu Association , the founders and the 
original sponsors of the Filipino Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu 
Week in the United States of America. 

PREAMBLE 

WE, FILIPINOS AND AMERICANS, AND ALL DEVOTEES OF THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU, 
RESIDING IN THE UNITED STATES AND FOREIGN COUNTRI ES, WHO COMMUNE WITH 
US IN OUR IDEALS AND ASPIRATIONS, IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH CLOSER TIES 
AMONGST US, FOSTER EFFECTIVENESS, MEANINGFUL COOPERATION, PROMOTE THE 
COMMON GOOD AND GENERAL WELFARE, DO ORGANIZE OURSELVES INTO A BROTHERLY 
ASSOCIATION. 

THE OBJECT AND PURPOSE OF THIS ORGANIZATION IS TO SERVE SANTO NINO FOR 
PEACE AND THE DIGNITY OF MEN THROUGH THIS ANNUAL VENERATION, TO HONOR 
AND CELEBRATE THE FIESTA OF THE SANTO NINO DE CEBU AMD IN ORDER TO 
FOSTER THE SPIRIT OF RESPECT AND UNDERSTANDING AMONG OUR PEOPLE THROUGH 
THIS SACRED, CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL TRADITION. 



(Erbu 



"Rich and colorful in heritage and tradition, Cebu is an integral part 
of the Republic of the Philippines. It has played a role so unique and 
tremendous in the building and adopting the ways and culture of a Wes- 
tern World so foreign and strange to a multitude of natives who at that 
time populated this Eastern group of islands. Cebu's metarmophosis had 
become a milestone in the annals of history, in that it was the epicen- 
ter of distribution, socially, politically and economically, since the 
landing of the Islands discoverer on April 7,1521. Humbly and without 
vaunt, Cebu can claim the first historic landmark which was ever plan- 
ted on the soil of any of the myriad little islands in the Pacific. The 
Giant Holy Cross, one of the many world tourist attractions in the Phi- 
lippines , speaks for itself. It was in Cebu, the Cradle of Christianity 
in the Far East, that the first Catholic wedding ceremony took place. 
These are facts which Cebuanos can be proud of and the rest cannot 
ignore. The first Roman Catholic Church was established in 1565 in 
honor of the Santo Nifio de Cebu, the most precious and tangible Image 
given to Rajah Humabon's beautiful wife by the discoverer of the Phil- 
ippines , Ferdinand Magellan. The Image still standing to this day at 
the Basilica Minore del Santo Nino in Cebu City .Republic of the Philippines

HISTORY OF THE SANTO Nil 
(continued) 



DE CEBU 



In the United States, the original Image of the Santo Nino de Cebu 
was brought by Commissioner Sally Basiga Famarin , (originally from 
Mandaue City) in January of 1968. The Image came from the Basilica 
Minore, Cebu City blessed by the then Rector of the Basilica, Rev. Resti- 
tuto Suarez. Since His arrival in the United States the Fiesta of the 
Santo Nino de Cebu Week has been celebrated every third week of January 
sponsored by the Cebu Association of California also known as Santo 
Nino de Cebu Association in San Francisco , Calif ornia .The Cebu Associa- 
tion has built the Marble Chapel Shrine of the Santo Nino de Cebu, the 
National Shrine of the Filipinos in the United States at San Francis- 
co's St. Joseph's Church.now the largest Filipino church in the United 
States. A City landmark and now on the National Register of Cultural 
and Historical Places in Washington ,D. C . the Marble Chapel is a site of 
pilgrims and tourist from the Philippines .The crowning glory of all 
these accomplishments: The recognition of the Most Reverend John R. 
Quinn, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the world 
recognition. . .the Apostolic Blessing of HIS HOLINESS.POPE JOHN PAUL 11 
from the Vatican. These are the highlights of the FIESTA OF THE SANTO 
NINO DE CEBU WEEK on January 8-17,1982. 

" MOST HOLY FATHER, WE THANK YOU FOR BEING IN OUR MIDST" 

Now we bring to you the excerpts of the messages:

of the Santo Nino de Cebu imparts to every Filipino a renewed sense of 

the value of the traditional Filipino Traits of piety , friendship and

Cardinal Julio R.Rosales ,D.D. , "Devotion to the Santo Nino or the Holy 
Child has always been a strong characteristic of the Cebuano people as

and hearts at the solemn coronation of the Santo Nino de Cebu on April 
28,1965. I am glad that in such far away country 'where you are, the 
flame of your love for the Holy Child still burns brighter than ever.

Archbishop Joseph T.McGucken of San Francisco," At this time when the 
bonds of family life in this country need to be strengthened in imita- 
tion of the Holy family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, we deeply appreciate 
the work of your Association and your devotion to the Santo Nino as a 
means of inspiring the highest values of Catholic Family life and the 
maintenance of the sacred traditions which you bring with you from your 
homeland. As our Filipino membership in the family of God in this area 
continue to grow, we hope that the Cebu Association will also continue 
to enjoy increased membership and blessings. I assure you of my prayers 
that you may continue to enjoy the support of God's providence." 




Consul General of the Philippines .Ambassador Romeo Arguelles," More 
than 400 years ago the Image of the Santo Nino was enthroned in the 
first Catholic church built in Cebu City by the Agustinian priests who 
were with the expedition of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi. Since then, the 
Santo Nino de Cebu, attributed with Miraculous powers, is the center of 
intense devotion by Cebuanos and other devotees and the object of re- 
ligious pilgrimages by Filipinos throughout the country. During the 
celebration of the 400 th Anniversary of Christianity in 1965, the 
church of the Holy Name of Jesus, where the Image of the Santo Nino is 
venerated, was declared Basilica Minore by Pope Paul VI, a coveted I 
honor which Cebuanos could be proud of. In celebrating the centuries 
old feast of Santo Nino de Cebu in San Francisco, you have shown your 
intense devotion to the Holy Child and your deep love for the rich cul- 
tural heritage and religious traditions of our homeland." 

Willie Brown, Jr. .Speaker of the House of Assembly , State of California , "In 
honor of this convenor at ive event, I would like to recognize the contribu- 
tions you have made to this Society, in which, we of all races and reli- 
gions live together, and to express the deep hope that the faith and ties 
which bind the Filipino American community will grow stronger with every 
new day." 

Mayor Joseph L. Alioto of San Francisco," San Francisco salutes it's Fili- 
pino American community for the many contributions it has made to the 
culture and atmosphere of our city. The Cebu Association and it's founder 
and President Sally B.Famarin have played an important part in fostering 
the spirit of respect and understanding which exists between the peoples 
of the Philippine Islands and the United States. May it continue to 
flourish. " 

Mayor of the City of Oakland, Lionel Wilson," We here in Oakland are cer- 
tainly aware of and appreciate the many significant contributions made 
to the betterment of our community by our citizens of rich Filipino heri- 
tage. Allow me to take this opportunity to commend each and everyone of 
ybur officers and members for their leadership , dedication and determina- 
tion in fulfilling those efforts and goal to promote friendly and pro-

piety of the Cebuanos in celebrating this yearly event are carried 
thcr wherever they <±re even in this distant land. Cebuanos should re-

Juvencio C.Alquisola, Carcar ,Cebu,D. "Auspicious to Cebuanos is this day 
in January 1968, when a small grouo of their fellw citizens began to 
gather momentum and dream up something which led to the subsequent for- 
mation of an organization which has never been successfully attempted 
hitherto by any other groups of people who hail from this particular 
province .Thus a newly -born society came into existence .better known as 
Cebu Association of California, founded and organized by the incomparable 
Miss Sally Famarin. Interrelationship with other organizations, civic 
mindedness in public affairs .putting our perspective into focus and pro- 
jecting new ideas .however humble and alien they may appear in the eyes 
of other people, these are the few points that this organization is trying 
to bring about, promote and accomplish, if given time and place under the 
sun. Through the exhaustible efforts of it's founder and first President, 
Sally B. Famarin (and a public relations expert, to boot) the timely ac- 
quisition of the Replica of the Infant Child of Cebu, has been made 
possible. We pay homage to the Infant Child, salute the president and all 
it's members . " 

From the Director of the Cofradia del Santo Kino de Cebu, Cebu City, 
Philippines ,Fr. Sulpicio B.Enderes ,0. S .A ., "Brethren , let me extend my 
warmest greetings to everyone of you. Peace and joy be in your heart 
forever as Santo Nino the Prince of peace has announced to us through 
the mouth of His angel"And on earth peace to men of good will." Let the 
goodwill therefore.be the spirit of all our actions, whether in the ful- 
fillment of the percepts of God or in our dealings with our fellow men, 
for it is in our will (intentions) where we get the value of our good 
actions with reference to our spiritual life on earth. Where there is a 
will there is a way, where there is a way, Santo Nino has an access to 
you; He will come to you and you will have peace as He often said to 
His disciples, "PEACE BE WITH YOU." 

To the Cebu Association and all friends of the Santo Nino, from Fr. Fred 
Bitanga,"May the nine days of prayer that culminated in a concelebrated 
mass in honor of Santo Nino de Cebu serve to remind us of the gifts we, 
through the richness of our heritage, can give to our world today: an 
imitation of the simplicity and innocense of a child and the humility of 
God who consents to become one of us. May this shared rejoicing in the 
things of God, a reflection of our living faith, make one in our family." 

Fr. Albert Bitangjol , San Francisco," This celebration brings us the memo- 
ry of the great donation of us Catholics to the Holy Infant. The Basilica 
in Cebu is the most frequented church of Cebuanos because the authentic 
Miraculous Image of Santo Nino is enthroned in that church. May this 
celebration and devotion bring closer to Jesus and let us live an authen- 
tic Christian life patterned after that Jesus himself. I would like to 
congratulate the officers and members of this organization for the good 
work they are doing in the community and to the Holy Infant Jesus."

John H.Upsuhr Atkinson, a life member of the Association," At a time in 
history when so many different ideologies are dividing so many peoples 
of the world, it is most gratifying to be a part of and to be able to 
witness the ever growing unity of our members and the whole Filipino 
community in the Bay area. The Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu gives 
the Filipino American a brief glimpse back into their homeland and I 
hope leaves them with many pleasant memories. To the youth of our commu- 
nity who have never seen the beautiful land their parents come from, this 
is a challenge to them as future leaders of our community to carry on 
their rich heritage and to never let die, but in the name of Santo Nifio 
go forward with head held high and be proud of their honorable heritage."

loyal and faithful. The past activities is the crowning evidence of this. 
The main pupose of the organization is not to compete with other organi- 
zation but to enhance the civic virtue of the Cebuanos .which makes them 
meet once a year to celebrate the Fiesta of the Santo Nifio de Cebu, the 
Miraculous patron of Cebu, and to reminisce about the historical fact 
that Cebu had contributed to the development and imbibing the European 
culture and civilization."

TO: THE CEBU ASSOCIATION OF CALIFORNIA, INC, 



I am pleased to extend my greetings to those 
participating in the Fiesta of Santo Nifio de Cebu. 

California has always been receptive to peoples 
from a variety of backgrounds. The fabric of our society, 
in turn, has been strengthened and enhanced by ethnic 
diversity. The Filipino people have made significant 
contributions to the United States and to California, 
and I commend your efforts to keep the Philippine her- 
itage alive and prosperous in our state. 

Best wishes for an enjoyable and spiritually 
rewarding celebration. 

Sincerely,

Dear Cebu Association of California, 

In a city blessed with a colorful diversity of 
celebrations, there are few that can match the pride 
and tradition of the Fiesta Santo Nino de Cebu. 

This weeklong celebration is a collage of the 
heritage and spirit brought to our shores by a beautiful 
people . 

The Filipino community and the culture which they 
share with us cannot be described in words, but rather 
with a feeling of inspiration that radiates from within. 
This festival provides the chance for all San Franciscans 
to share that inspiration in honor of Santo Nino de Cebu. 

Celebrate !

Dear Sally, 

I am delighted to send my warmest greetings 
and best wishes to you and all of my friends in 
the Cebu Association of California as you celebrate 
the Annual Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu. 

I am certain that this will be a most happy 
occasion for all and I hope that the special 
activities commemorating this event will be successful 
and enjoyable. 

I recently returned from the Philippines which I 
visited as the lor.der of the trade mission sponsored 
by the Filipino- American Chamber of Commerce. I am 
pleased that increased goodwill and friendship between 
the United States and the Philippines resulted from 
this trip. The friendship which I share with the people 
of the Philippines is very important to me and it is 
something which I have long cherished. 

I hope that 1982 brings all of you everything 
good, and I look forward to being with you at many 
future celebrations. 

Mabuhay ,

Dear Ms. Shull : 



St. Joseph's Church, San Francisco, will be submitted to you 

in late December for inclusion in the National Registry. 

On January 17, 1982, the Filipino community of San Francisco, 

for whom this church has special significance as the national 

shrine of Santo Nino de Cebu, will hold a festival culminating 

in a Pontifical mass and the reading of a message from Pope 
John Paul II. 




December 18, 1981 



i 




It is their strong hope that St. Joseph's church will be on 
the National Register by that date so that this historic event 
might also be celebrated. 

I sincerely hope that you will be able to find a way to expedite 
this matter. Frank Kieliger of my San Franciso staff will call 
you shortly after the first of the year to check the status of 
St. Joseph's Church as the January 17th celebration draws near. 

Kindest personal regards.

Filipinos, which St. Joseph has become .greatly contributes to the histo- 
rical recognition and the cultural enlightenment of the Filipino commu- 
nity. St. Joseph'' s church houses the original Image of the Miraculous 
Santo Nino de Cebu in the United States .making it one of San Francisco's 
most historical , cultural and religious shrine and worthy of placement on

ST. JOSEPH'S CHURCH DESIGNATION AS HISTORIC SITE 



Congressman Phillip Burton joined in support of Cebu

and Historical Sites. 

In his letter to Dr. Knox Melon of the Office of Historic

significant role in our City since its founding as a parish in 1861. 
It currently serves a unique place in the cultural life of San Frjncisco's

Dear Dr. Mellon: 

This letter is to express my strong recommendation that the 
St. Joseph's Church of San Francisco be placed in the National 
Register of Cultural and Historical Places. 

As you know, San Francisco is greatly enriched by its cultural 
and ethnic diversity. 

The National Shrine of the Filipinos, which St. Joseph's 
Church has become, greatly contributes to the historical recognition 
and the cultural enlightenment of the Filipino Community. 

St. Joseph's Church houses the original Image of the 
Miraculous Santo Nino de Cebu making it one of San Francisco's 
most historical, cultural and religious shrines and worthy of 
placement in the National Register. 

I urge vou to acknowledge this important landmark for the benefit 
of both present and future generations who will appreciate its 
cultural, asthetic and architectural contributions.

€$rom %^Rq Presidents &en 

On behali oi the Cebu Association oi Calliorruji 
lnc.,aka, Santo Nino de Cebu Association, It Is with 
great honor and pride to greet all devotees oi the 
Santo Kino de. Cebu who came to honor Him In this mag- 
nificent and beautliul cultural and historical tradi- 
tion oi our people and ior all iuture generations. 

The iervent and almost fanatical adulation oi 
the Image oi the Santo Nino de Cebu by Filipinos li 
oi cultural and historical slgnlilcance. It Is not 
only anchored In their basic religious trait, but 
atso come irom their oum heritage. 

As the Rector oi the Basilica Mlnore oi Cebu 
Clty,Rep. oi the Philippines, Rev. Fr. Restltuto 
Suarez sold In his message In 7974, "Ten years oi 
service, dedication, devotion, coupled with unti- 
ring eiiorti and sacrlilces In fastening the irlend- 
ly relations between Filipinos and Americans In Ca- 
tifarnla,U.S.A. deserve the applause and apprecia- 
tion oi all law-abiding citizens." 

IN RECOGNITION AND GRATITUDE 

To all those people, ecclesiastical and govern- 
ment oiilcals, leaden irom various organizations, 
oiilcers and members oi the Cebu Association and 
her chapters and aiiUUates, all the ne&s media, 
who gave oi themselves In various ways In all 
our projects and accomplishments... and many, many 
others, who In their humble ways put In their 
shares though how big or small It may be ...even 
those who would rather be unnamed ... or those 
whose names escape our memory... our greatest 
joy was In selng what we were able to do toge- 
ther !!! 



The irultiul years oi hardships and struggle, the perseverance and patience we have shown, all 
the sacrifices we overcame, has made the Cebu Association great and strong, proud oi It's 
Ideals, alms and goals which we hve ilnally accomplished. Our dreams has come to a reallty.We 
have our center oi devotion, the national Shrine oi the FILiplnos In the United States oi 
America at San Francisco's St. Joseph's Church. 

" THV WILL BE PONE" 

Nothing could be more slgnlilcant that aiter more than a decade oi toll and struggle ior 
the enthronlzatlon oi the Santo Nino de Cebu In the United States, the signs that went up with 
It, the Marble Chapel, the Special Cultural, Special Historical, and architectural landmark or 
aesthetic Interest or value, the Traditional Carroza ior the Traditional Processional Parade 
along the streets oi San Francisco In honor oi the Santo Nino de Cebu, which Is the largest 
religious Processional parade In the United States, which has brought National distinction to 
Fltiplno Americans and represent the Philippine segment oi the community. . .with the Mayors 
Proclamation oi San Francisco and Callfarnla State Senate Resolutions which has payed the way 
not only to Filipinos religious activities but brought to the ioreiront the Filipinos' active 
participation In our Society Including civic, social, cultural, economic, historical and poli- 
tical Involvement. 

I am proud to say that not only will the great honor be ielt by the Tlllplnos but all 
Americans, especially San Franciscans and Catiiornlans ior now, St. Joseph's Church Is on the 
National Register oi Cultural and Historical Places. At this time oi writing, Filipinos all over 
the United States has emulated the Fiesta oi the Santo Nino de Cebu In dliierent parts oi the 
country. AiteA all these years we were able to build the Marble Chapel oi the Santo Nlho de 
Cebu, the National Shrine oi the Filipinos In the United States oi Amerlcalthe ilrst Marble 
Chapel Shrine oi the Santo Nino built outside the PhUUpplnes]at St. Joseph's Church, La Cha- 
pella del Santo Nino de Cebu, the largest FiLiplno Church In the United States... it is oi great 
moment when one remembers that aiter all the years oi sacrlilces . . . to bring to out adopted 
land, the United States oi America... the cultural, historical and most sacred oi the Filipino 
traits and traditions. .to Introduce to this adopted country oi ours the cultural and h<st. 
aspects oi our land oi birth... that we may be recognized all over the nation... tin UlH has 
come... we ieel we have accomplished what we have strlved ior ... so let It be ttt <n ttcohd, 
let It be a part oi the history oi the Filipinos in the United States... let <t bf Chi pride 
oi all Filipinos wherever he may be! 

The Special Recognition oi Archbishop John R.Qulnn oi the Archdiocese oi San Francisco is 
a great pride we all share... and most oi all the World Recognition. . .the Papal Blessing oi His 
Holiness Pope John Paul 11 irom the Vatican, Rome, which has upllited the Image and pilot

MESSAGE 



In this world so torn with strife because of the vastly different political 
nd religious ideologies, it is truly wonderful that so many people of different 
olors and ethnic backgrounds, many whose birthplace is 6,000 miles away can each 
ear at this time gather together as one to celebrate and worship the true 
Prnice of Peace". 

From the frivolity and pleasures given by our pageant, dance, luncheoe 
ueen's ball, on to the deeply religious Mass and Procession bearing the Mira- 
ulous Santo Nino de Cebu into the streets of our city for all to see. 

I wish to personally thank everyone who has contributed with time, 
oney and energy to make this, our Annual Filipino Fiesta the largest 
nd most successful ever. 

To the many government officials both here and abroad, 
ederal, State and local, to our clergy, to the professionals 
n all walks, to the officers and members of the Cebu 
.ssociation, to our lovely Queen Rosalie 1 and He 
:oyal Court and to all devotees of the Christ

MESSAGES EXCERPTS 



Cardinal Julio R.Rosales ,D.D. , "Devotion to the Santo Nino or the Holy 
Child has always been a strong characteristic of the Cebuano people as 
well as of the Filipinos in general. This was proven during the IV 
Centennial celebration when the whole Filipino populace joined hands 
and hearts at the solemn coronation of the Santo Nino de Cebu on April 
28,1965. I am glad that in such far away country -where you are, the 
flame of your love for the Holy Child still burns brighter than ever. 
This is one sure sign that you Christian faith is one that is alive and 
fervent. May you keep it ever burning until eternity. Hence, while we 
honor and adore the Holy Child Jesus, in the Image of the Santo Nino de 
Cebu, let us ever keep in mind that He stands for the spirit of simpli- 
city and humility as a condition to enter God's kingdom and for the 
love and good upbringing of children who will be the men and leaders 
of tomorrow. " 




Reverend James A. McGee .Pastor of St. Joseph's Church, La Chapella del 
Santo Nino de Cebu, San Francisco , "1 would like to take this opportunity 
to thank all our parishioners and devotees of the Santo Nino de Cebu, 
the officers and members of the Cebu Association of California, Inc .and 
to Sally B.Famarin, President of the Parish Council of St. Joseph's 
church for your strong devotion, love and admiration of the Santo Nino 
de Cebu. The Marble Chapel is a lasting memory for all your sacrifices, 
love and understanding .May it continue to flourish! The landmarks pre- 
servation of St. Joseph's church at the time of the enthronization and 
building of the Santo Nino de Cebu Shrine in the church have made it 
more significant and meaningful not only to the Filipino people but all 
our people. This is now part of San Francisco history and will be car- 
ried from generation to generation." 

Rev. Fr. Medardo Durmiendo, Rector , Basilica Minore , Cebu City , Philippines , 
I am glad to know that you are building a Marble Chapel for Santo Niho. 
This is, indeed, a very laudable project, for the Senor Santo Nino will 
have a beautiful shrine in California. I commend and congratulate all 
the devotees who will enthrone the Santo Nino de Cebu on the Marble 
altar. May this Marble Chapel be a symbol of love and unity among you, 
Pinoys, living in the United States. May you be united in all your en- 
deavors in the name of Senor Santo Nino de Cebu." 

Mayor Florentino Solon of Cebu City , Philippines , "The annual procession 
and veneration of the Miraculous Image of the Santo Nino de Cebu in 
San Francisco, which has drawn pilgrimages from different parts of Calif 
ornia and other States, has assumed profound meaning and significance 
in the sense that this traditional Cebuano religious rites has crossed 
great oceans and errased territorial boundaries not only to strengthen 
our ties of brotherhood but also foster friendship and mutual coopera- 
tion with the American people." 




MESSAGES EXCERPTS 



Archbishop Joseph T.McGucken of San Francisco," At this time when the 
bonds of family life in this country need to be strengthened in imita- 
tion of the Holy family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, we deeply appreciate 
the work of your Association and your devotion to the Santo Nino as a 
means of inspiring the highest values of Catholic Family life and the 
maintenance of the sacred traditions which you bring with you from your 
homeland. As our Filipino membership in the family of God in this area 
continue to grow, we hope that the Cebu Association will also continue 
to enjoy increased membership and blessings. I assure you of my prayers 
that you may continue to enjoy the support of God's providence." 




Consul General of the Philippines .Ambassador Romeo Arguelles," More 
than 400 years ago the Image of the Santo Nino was enthroned in the 
first Catholic church built in Cebu City by the Agustinian priests who 
were with the expedition of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi. Since then, the 
Santo Nino de Cebu, attributed with Miraculous powers, is the center of 
intense devotion by Cebuanos and other devotees and the object of re- 
ligious pilgrimages by Filipinos throughout the country. During the 
celebration of the 400 th Anniversary of Christianity in 1965, the 
church of the Holy Name of Jesus, where the Image of the Santo Nino is 
venerated, was declared Basilica Minore by Pope Paul VI, a coveted i 
honor which Cebuanos could be proud of. In celebrating the centuries 
_>ld feast of Santo Nino de Cebu in San Francisco, you have shown your 
intense devotion to the Holy Child and your deep love for the rich cul- 
tural heritage and religious traditions of our homeland." 

Willie Brown, Jr. .Speaker of the House of Assembly , State of California, "In 
honor of this conmer.orative event , I would like to recognize the contribu- 
tions you have made to this Society, in which, we of all races and reli- 
gions live together, and to express the deep hope that the faith and ties 
which bind the Filipino American community will grow stronger with every 
new day." 

Mayor Joseph L. Alioto of San Francisco," San Francisco salutes it's Fili- 
pino American community for the many contributions it has made to the 
culture and atmosphere of our city. The Cebu Association and it's founder 
and President Sally B.Famarin have played an important part in fostering 
the spirit of respect and understanding which exists between the peoples 
of the Philippine Islands and the United States. May it continue to 
flourish. " 

Mayor of the City of Oakland .Lionel Wilson," We here in Oakland are cer- 
tainly aware of and appreciate the many significant contributions made 
to the betterment of our community by our citizens of rich Filipino heri- 
tage. Allow me to take this opportunity to commend each and everyone of 
your officers and members for their leadership , dedication and determina- 
tion in fulfilling those efforts and goal to promote friendly and pro- 
ductive relations between Filipinos and Americans."

To the South of Luzon is a cluster of islands, the most densely populated of which is Cebu. 
Cebu City , the oldest city in the country, is its capital 

In the Plaza of Cebu City stands a large hollow cross protecting an old inner cross which 

was planted by Magellan on Philippine soil when he and his soldiers celebrated their 

Rrst Mass m the islands in 1521. Nearby is the beautiful church of San Agustin 

(now the Basilica Minore) where rests the most ancient image of the country 

the Santo Nino (Holy Child), around which revolves many stories handed 

down from generation to generation. One believes that image to havt 

been presented by Magellan to the wife of a Cebu chieftain upon her 

conversion to Christianity, and recovered 40 years later after the 

arrival of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi who got the conversion and 

colonization of the islands underway. Another story, believed 

to be authentic, is related by an Agustinian friar. Upon the 

arrival of Legaspi in Cebu, the natives, so the story goes, 

burned their houses and fled to the mountains in fear. 

A soldier, by the name of Juan Camus, noticed while 

patiolling the area, that one nipa hut was spared 

by the flames which had enveloped the whole place 

He entered the house and on the floor saw a 

beautiful wooden box bound with a strong 

rope Inside the box was still another box 

in which the Holy Child was laid. The // 

tiny image has been venerated for 

centuries as a miraculous symbol 

of Christianity 



Half an hour by motor boat 

from Cebu City is the island of 

Mactan where stands a monument 

to Magellan on the spot where the 

Portuguese navigator met his death 

at the hands of the native chief, Lapulapu. 



Cebu is 45 minutes from Manila by plane and 22 hours by boat.

HIS HOLINESS, POPE JOHN PAUL 11 IN CEBU, PHILIPPINES , LITURGY OF THE WORD 



Finding myself in this important city known as the cradle of Christianity 
in the Philippines, I want to express my deep joy and profound thanks- 
giving to the Lord of history. The thought that for 450 years the light 
of the Gospel has shown with undimmed brightness in this land and on its 
people is cause for great rejoicing. Four and a half centuries of fruit- 
ful interaction between the local culture and the Christian message have 
resulted in this harmonious blending called "Filipino Christian culture." 
God's providence in the Philippines has truly been wonderful. The Chris- 
tianization that took place in the sixteenth century was not something 
merely accidental. Divine grace was at work when the people of this 
region had their first contact with the image of the Santo Nino. It is 
an in portant historical fact, rich in religious meaning, that on 1 January 
1571 the village kingdom of Sugbu was renamed "Villa del Santo >'ino ", 
and thus the first city of the Philippines was placed under the patronage 
of the Child Jesus. 

In a particular way the church thanks God that the tiny Christian commu- 
nity o~f Sugbu, under the patronage of the Infant Jesus, has now become a 
flourishing archdiocese of two million people, almost all of whom are 
Catholics- It can truly be said that growth in faith and Christian 
living has been until now a constant feature of the church in Cebu as 
well as the whole Philippines. The glorious past gives hope for the 
future.

Dear Mrs . Famarin: 

• ' I 

While my schedule does not permit me to join you for the Fiesta 
in honor of Santo Nino de Cebu, I do wish to thank you for your 
courtesy in extending this invitation and to assure you that I 
will be with you in prayer and spirit on January 18th. 

In 1521 the great explorer, Ferdinand Magellan, planted the cross 
in the city of Cebu. Since that time the Christian faith has 
qrown and flourished in the Philippine Islands and this faith has 
been brought by you to the United States. The religious fervor 
of the Filipino people and their rich cultural heritage is a 
source of blessing to the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Your de- 
voted priests and religious give testimony to the efficacy of 
that cross planted long ago in the city of Cebu. 

With gratitude for the many rich gifts the Filipino Community has 
brought to the Church in San Francisco and with prayers that the 
Christ Child will continue to bless you and your people as you 
strive to serve Him, I am

GREETINGS TO THE CHURCH AND PHILIPPINE NATION 

Dear People of the Philippines 

In my desire to know personally the great peoples 
of Asia, I wanted my first Papal visit to be to the 
the Philippines. The Philippine Nation is deser- 
ving of particular honour since, from the begin- 
ning of its chr istianization, from the moment that 
Magellan planted the Cross in Cebu Four Hundred 
and Sixty years ago, on April 15,1521, all through 
the centuries, it's people have remained true to 
the Christian Faith. In an acievement that remains 
unparalleled in history , the message of Christ 
took roots in the hearts of the people within a 
brief span of time, and the church was thus strong- 
ly implanted in this nation of seven thousand 
island and numerous tribal and ethnic communities. 
The rich geographical and human diversity, and va- 
rious cultural traditions, and the peoples joy and 
sharing, together with the fruits of the missiona- 
ry efforts, have successfully blended and have 
shaped, through periods which were sometimes not 
devoid of shadows and weaknesses, a clear national 
identity that is unmistakably Filipino and truly 
Christian. 

Due homage must be paid to this achievement of the 
Filipino people, but what you are also creates an obligation and it confers upon the 
nation a specific mission. A country that has kept the Catholic faith strong and vi- 
brant through the vicissitudes of it's history , the sole nation in Asia that is ap- 
proximately ninety percent Christian, assumes by this fact the obligation not only 
to preserve it's Christian heritage but to bear witness to the values of its Chris- 
tian culture before the whole world. Although small in size of land and population 
compared to some of its neighbors, the Philippine Nation has undoubtedly a special 
role in the concert of nations, in order to consolidate peace and international un- 
derstanding, and more particularly in maintaining stability in South East Asia, where 
it has a vital task. The Filipino people will always carry out this task from their 
noble heritage-a heritage not only of Christian faith but also of the rich human 
and cultural values that are their own.

As in past Sto. Nino festivities, I convey 
our people's greetings to all participants and to 
the organizers of the 1982 Fiesta of the Sto. Nino 
de Cebu in San Francisco. 

It is a truly momentous occasion when the 
Cebu Association of California, Inc., is joined 
by United States government officials both on the 
local and national levels as well as by the highest 
authority in the Catholic hierarchy, Pope John Paul 
II, in commemorating the feast day of Sto. Nino de 
Cebu. Festival 1982, therefore, deserves our 
commendation and recognition as further evidence 
that the Filipinos in the United States have pre- 
served their religious heritage. 

Filipinos are widely known for their religious 
zeal. Festival 1982 enhances this image. 

My warmest congratulations. MABUHAY!

Rich and colorful in heritage and tradition, Cebu is and in- 
tegral part of the Republic of the Philippines. Is has played 
a role so unique and tremendous in the building and adopting 
the ways and culture of a Western World so foreign 
and strange to a multitude of natives who at that time popu- 
lated this Eastern group of islands. Cebu's metarmophosis 
had become a milestone in the annals of history, in that it 
was the epicenter of distribution, socially, politically, 
and economically, since the landing of the Islands discove- 
rer on April 7,1521. Humbly and without vaunt, Cebu can claim 
the first historic landmark which was ever planted on the soil 
of any of the myriad little islands in the Pacific. The GIANT j, r; a ^t Hotu CtioAA 
HOLY CROSS, one of the many world tourist attractions in the 
Philippines, speaks for itself. It was in Cebu, the Cradle of 
Christianity in the Far East, that the first wedding ceremo- 
ny took place. These are facts which Cebuanos can be proud of 
and the rest cannot ignore. The first Roman Catholic Church 
was established in 1565 in honor of the Santo Nino de Cebu, 
the most precios and tangible Image given to Rajah Humabon's 
beautiful wife by the discoverer of the Philippines, Ferdi- 
nand Magellan. The Image still standing to this day at the 
Basilica Minore del Santo Nino de Cebu, Cebu City, Philippines. 





Most Reverend Daniel F. Walsh, Auxiliary Bishop and Vicar 
General of the Archdiocese of San Francisco presided at 
the mass during the "Fiesta of the Santo Nino de Cebu 
Week", on January 17,1982 at St. Joseph's Church, San 
Francisco, California and imparted the Papal Blessing 
from Pope John Paul 11. He was principal concelebrator 
together with Fr . Luis V.Resma, Andres Diaz,Fr. Bar- 
tolome from the Philippines and James Ahern. 

Rev. Joel Almendras, S.J. .Berkeley, California, "On the 
ocassion of the Fiesta of the Senor Santo Ni?!o de Cebu 
in San Francisco, I would like to congratulate the 
officers and members of the Cebu Association of Calif- 
ornia, Inc., headed by Miss Sally B. Famarin. As a 
Cebuano, I am proud of this celebration which the 
Cebuanos in San Francisco annually undertake."

Sprouted inom a seed which was once a dream, in January 196%, gathered a small group o& 
people who hail irom the particular province oi Cebu, Republic oi the Philippines. That

AKA Santo Kino de Cebu Association, the iounders and original sponsors oft the Filipino 
fiesta oi the Santo Kivto de Cebu Week in the United States o& America.

On Januany 1,1969, the Replica o& the Miraculous "Image oi the Santo Kino de Cebu arrived 
in San Francisco, Caliiornia, USA. The penson nesponsible &on the transaction at the time

inom the Basilica, blessed by Rev. RestiXuto Suarez, O.S. A. , Rector o& Basilica del Santo 
Kino in Cebu City. The Image was 44 yeans old then. In Vecemben 1977 the Image was re- 
novated and the crown was filled with precious gems. 

Precious Gems o& the Santo Kino de Cebu," Since the Santo Kino de Cebu Arrived in the 
UniXed States in 1969 some o£ the OHicers and Members oi the Cebu Association oft Ca- 
lifornia have donated jewels ion Him. As years go by more and more jewels were received,

on the golden crown donated and designed by John H. Atkinson.

nation oi the Spanish word, camarera and a very royal tradition o& assigning a special 
gnoup to take care o& dressing and keeping of, the wardrobe oi a reigning monarch. It 
was but natrual that in where the kingship oi the Miraculous Santo Kino reign, there 
should be iormed a gnoup known as Camareras del Santo Kino. In the UniXed States the 
Camareras was iormed in 1977 wliich was composed oi oHicers and active members c<i the 
Association. 

The Hubc," the dressing and undressing rituals. Robing and disnobing oi the beloved San- 
to Kino is careiully done by the ladies oi the camareras. Camareras peniorm their duties 
especially during the ritual oi the "Hubo" when robing and disrobing oi the Santo Nino 
takes place. As customary this is done a week aiter the iiesta celebrations. The iirst 
ritual in the United States started in the year 1977. 

The Sinolog" , the dance ritual, started in the United States in 1975 wliich thrills San

Celstino Alfafara from Carcar, Cebu, Philippines,' The thougiit that I would tike to in- 
calcate in the minds of the young Cebuanos is the preservation of the tradiXional reli- 
gious veneration of the Santo Kiho de Cebu. Voung men, remember what Benjamin 'Disraeli 
said that, 'the youth of a nation <w.e the trustees of prosperity.'" 

John H. Upsuhr Atkinson, a life menber of the Cebu Association, "At a time in history 
when so many different ideologies are dividing so many peoples of the world, it is most 
gratifying to be a part and to be able to witness the ever grouping unity of our members 
and the whole Filipino Community in the Bay Area. The fiesta of the Santo Kino de Cebu 
gives the Filipino-American community a brief glimpse back into their homeland and I 
hope leaves them with many pleasant memories. To the youth of out community who have 
never seen the beautiful land their parents come from, this is a challenge to them as 
future leaders of our community to carry on their rich heAitage and to never Cct die, 
but in the name (■•& Santo Kino go forioard with head held high and be proud of to 
honorable heritage." 

Juvencio Alquisola, C arcar, Cebu, Philippines, [V] , " Auspicious to Cebuanos <s this day 
in January 196&, when a small group of their fellow citizens began to gather momentum 
and dream up something which led to the subsequent formation of an organization which 
has never been successfully attempted hitherto by any other groups of people who fi 
from the particular province. Thus a newly born Society came <n<V existence., better 
known as Cebu Association of California, founded and organized by the •■ llcA4
